People have behavioral issues that need to be addressed through counseling. People who need help should get help — especially veterans.
Vernell Baker, Veterans Advocate, Dorchester
If someone goes on a rampage and kills people, they have issues. The government should do more to intervene before people go to extremes. Mental health services should be more readily available and less stigmatized.
Morgan Taylor, Graduate Student, Roxbury

Lance Wheeler, Cook, Dorchester
I believe that all guns should be banned in this country except for those needed by law enforcement officials.
Kevin Peterson, Executive Director, Dorchester
More metal detectors in public places and more law enforcement on duty.
Jose Miguel Rivera, Student, Roxbury
People coming out of the military have post-traumatic stress disorders. It’s not their fault, but they shouldn’t be able to have guns.
Donna Butler, Student, Roxbury
