Key word is “diagnosable.” It is important for several reasons to keep this in mind as we go over the estimates. Many of these illnesses are not like a broken bone or biological disease. You can become a little depressed or become functional bi-polar. Unlike the flu, you do not get “a little” flu.

I do not believe we need to lockup folks but we do need to deal with the reality of the harm and dangers. Someone how is ill needs help and society needs to protect those how cannot protect themselves for these individuals as best it can. NOT PERSECUTE THEM! Or maybe you think that it is ok? Give guns to individuals who are a danger to others and themselves.
