This is since any edition 91.7 WV you I’m Dan Hurley in the 8-day since 3 people were murdered and 2 injured in the lobby of the 5th 3rd Bank we have learned more about the shooter Omar Santa Perez most troubling is that the family of the 29-year-old who was shot and killed by police appeal to the courts to commit Santa to mental treatment mental health treatment if the court said complied Santow Perot’s would have been banned from buying a gun legally in Ohio. But that didn’t happen . And once again we’re left entangled in the debate over mental illness and access to guns to re-review what we have learned and how this incident might inform ongoing debate about gun control in Ohio , we’re joined by Cincinnati inquiry Porter Jessie ball Meert antigen . If you would like to join our discussion . You can call 513-419-7100 or email said talk that WV actually you died orgy were also on Twitter and Facebook . Jessi welcome back to Cincinnati addition . Thanks for having me . The mix of federal and state laws that control the hold gun mental health and gun access it can be very confusing and just to be clear here , we’re talking about 2 states at least Florida and Ohio in the federal government . How would you put that mix of laws together , how would you describe that .
Well , I think I described it as complicated because it is and the challenges you’re trying to balance some competing interests you’re trying to balance individuals rights Second Amendment rights to access firearms and and old one in 5 individuals have some sort of mental health Commissioner issue within a given year , and so there are a lot of people with mental health concerns and certainly most of them are , are not dangerous at all , and so you don’t want to imply everyone with a mental health you know diagnosis is going to be dangerous and and have access to a firearm , but there are certainly people like Mr. sent her Perez who relatives begged to the courts to commit to mental health treatment and and he saw was able to legally purchase a firearm in Cincinnati years later.
So in the case of his family. As I understand it they went to court .
