I propose a new tax on gun purchases and gun supplies and tools. All current license cost would also be increased.
The money generated will be used to place several Psychologist in all schools at all grade levels to monitor and correct dysfunctional mental health.
The psychologist would also set up seminars to teach teachers how to identify mentally unhealthy children so they can be identified and get
appropriate help early in life.
This money would also be used to establish mental health centers where mentally impaired children can get direct supervision and mental health
counseling until they are healthy and able to return to normal life.
This would take many years to have the intended effect because we could not stop all the crazies already out in the system now, but we could intercept
the next crazies before they become mentally ill while they are young. We can correct the behaviors or possibly institutionalize them if that is only
way to protect them and the public.
The gun tax and license increase would be equal to what ever it costs to fund this program and yes that might mean gun prices would skyrocket, which
would reduce the amount of future gun sales.
Gun taxes would be higher on more powerful guns than on the less powerful ones, meaning an AR-15 would have a HUGE tax on it while a 38 Revolver would
be much lower.
This is a much better plan than mutilating our constitution and liberty.
