UVA Hosts Forum On Mental Health And Guns

Virginia’s next Lieutenant Governor headlined a Monday forum at the University of Virginia that focused on mental health issues and gun control. State Senator Ralph Northam gave the keynote address at an event labeled “From Virginia Tech to the Navy Yard: New Approaches For Keeping Guns From Dangerous People.” The panel included Lori Haas, whose daughter was wounded during the 2007 massacre in Blacksburg, and UVA Law Professor Richard Bonnie (pictured). Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation says gun control backers want to monopolize the airwaves as we approach next week’s anniversary of the Sandy Hook murders in Connecticut. Gottlieb was a Monday guest on the Schilling Show.
