Davis Open To Considering Some Changes To Gun Laws, But Only If Congress Also Tackles Mental Health


Another local congressman says the issue in the aftermath of the Connecticut school massacre isn’t guns… it’s mental illness. 

 

Like Aaron Schock a day earlier, GOP Congressman Rodney Davis also says that focusing on new gun restrictions is misplaced, and says Congress should instead be working to expand access to mental health treatment. 

 

Davis doesn’t rule out changes to background checks or a crackdown on so-called “straw purchases” of guns, but only if mental health is part of the discussion.  And he flatly opposes an assault weapons ban, saying it would only outlaw guns that are scary-looking, but not any more lethal than any other kind of firearm.
