Welcome back to on the Honda -- -- dot com live I'm Jonathan Honda wanna go down to Miami now.
And our folks he's Latino contributor Rick Sanchez.
Rick I gather -- dead at the president mentioned.
This is a multifaceted approach 88 may be about gun control but it's also about our culture of violence is the guys on the hit list -- just saying.
And also -- mental health -- got some bolts on the mental health.
Aspect of this.
Well it should be hey Jonathan first of all -- orient.
Good yeah I've -- a two pronged attack right and the first one should be some kind of debate around gun control.
And the second one should be of emphasis on mental health.
And the first one by the way I think.
There's a better chance that you or high will become the king of Norway in the coming year.
Then that the US congress and the president will be able to come up with some meaningful change.
In terms of gun control in this is society that we live in today so let's put that one aside and move on -- -- true.
Since not enough people I think are doing that there's a serious issue with.
Mental health in this country and the more I looked into it the more I was surprised to find out that the incidents of Asperger's which is what this young -- -- -- suffered from.
Is up like 20% over the last five years.
Same as autism.
So while this is something we need to pay attention to.
So did but how do we pay attention to it -- it's it's as with so many things in the realm of health care -- Cost cost cost.
Well treat it but I mean -- ask you question let me ask the folks who -- sitting at home listening right now.
If if you had a chance to get together with your neighbors and come up with the money.
To pay for mr.
Mental health treatment.
Last month would you have done it knowing what he went on to do.
Yeah so the incidents -- people like him are growing the incidence of violent attacks are growing.
There is more availability it seems -- people like that to be able to get guns in a society where we live and so we need to look at what we're doing for these folks in terms of mental health and I did.
Two things first of all I found out from doing some research that.
Yes when you have -- burgers there's actually violent -- that comes along with -- unfortunately.
This is not to say that anyone who has Asperger's is going to do something like this or will become violent but there is.
A tendency that exists among many of the other things that -- afflicted with -- the other thing that comes at a play here that is really important is what are we doing about health care I checked -- all hope so called obamacare.
The healthy mental health provisions don't even -- him Jonathan until 2004 game.
So we want to wait that long to make sure that this happens the other part of it is it really cuts back on mental health as far as what they can -- It -- back their medication and forces them to get cheaper medication.
A lot of these guys a lot of the lambs is out there.
They're not gonna go to the doctor they're gonna drop out of going to their psychotherapists are getting their care and that's gonna be a problem.
For the rest of us.
All right interesting -- that Rick Sanchez -- article is up and foxnews.com.
