|Will lawmakers work together on the issue of|
gun violence, or will they punch each other?
Recently, Colorado Public Radio asked its listeners to share thoughts on gun violence, mental health care, and what to do about individuals who may be at risk of harming others.
For my part, I spoke about a little known law in Colorado that allows people to petition the court for a mental health evaluation for a loved one if it is suspected the person might have a mental illness and might be dangerous.
Here is a link to the radio story: Can Lawmakers Prevent Mass Shootings?
I would like to offer a special thanks to Lee Hill and Ryan Warner, the two journalists at Colorado Public Radio who helped me spread the word about this law.
