Another crazy week in the United States. We see another mass shooting in Oregon that left nine people dead. I don’t understand the news media and some elected officials on how can they just look at this as another mental health issue. People are already arguing not to mess with our Second Amendment.

The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A WELL REGULATED MILITIA, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Can someone please tell me what militia do we have now? Why are people so opposed to more efficient background checks on people? Why should mental health issues not be a part of rejecting a gun license to someone? And last but not least why is Rudy Giuliani saying that gun control would not reduce crimes? Is he not seeing the same things we are? Mass shootings are happening more often.  This is not and should not be just a normal thing that happens in our country. Yet Giuliani is all for the Stop and Frisk of minorities in NYC.

As a minority in NYC myself, why should my Fourth amendment right be violated, and why should someone from Oregon with mental health issues be granted a gun license? Just because I fit the description of  90 percent of the dark-skinned Hispanic in NYC. That should not give police officers the right to detained and search me without my consent.

The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights that prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and requires any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause.

No matter on what side you stand, we all must realize that we have a huge problem in our country. Living in the South Bronx we deal with black on black crimes all the time. The reality is that when you look at all the killing in my neck of the woods, they are all being committed by people with mental health issues. They all have mental health issues and it does not matter if you’re in the Bronx or in Oregon. In one of my previous articles named “GOVERNMENT FAILURE” I wrote on how the government blames the insurance company and the insurance company blames our government. It’s time to stop playing games with our lives. It Is time to do more and get more serious about our gun control laws. I have two daughters and I fear for their safety when they leave the house. How many more people have to die?

Let’s have Rudy Giuliani speak face to face with the families of the nine people killed in Oregon and tell them that having stricter gun control laws would not have  affected their loved one’s out come. Let’s have him tell them that this happened because of mental health issues and there is nothing we could do to fix this. I think the only thing people are asking for is adding a simple question on a gun permit application. “Have you ever been diagnosed with any mental illness?” 

My advice to all politicians is that we should consider better background check on all American’s. If you have ever been diagnosed with any mental problem you should not be granted a gun license, let’s legislate, that if you are caught with an illegal gun in your possession you should served a minimum of 15 years in prison.  Whether is your First offense or not.
