Congressman Schock Says Mental Health Should be Focus


Congressman Aaron Schock says the focus on gun legislation in the aftermath of the Connecticut school massacre is, quote, “a cheap shot.”

 

Instead, Schock says the real focus ought to be on mental health care.

 

He calls mental illness the common denominator in recent mass shootings around the country.

 

Schock says he is working on legislation to make it easier for families to get help for mentally ill relatives.

 

But for now, his proposal does not include additional federal funding for mental health programs.
