Also called The Murphy Bill, H.R. 2646 is the brainchild of Senator Tim Murphy (R-Pennsylvania) and has a lot of people very worried. Quoting a piece on RealMHChange.org, it combines two issues that would do much better separately, but thanks to the "mass shootings" we have seen all over the country, Congress is seeing fit to treat mental health and gun control as related: "As always, the critical message to our legislators and to the Administration is that mental health reform and gun violence should be addressed as separate issues. To conflate them into one policy issue amounts to scapegoating of people with mental health conditions and reinforces the fault link between mental health and gun violence."
