Mum of Suicide Death Daughter Pushes for Mentally Ill Gun Control Measure

Learn how I beat Depression

The suicide by gunshot wound of another young woman has led to calls on a ban on the under regulated sale of guns in The United States by the victim’s mother.

The 23-year-old had gone in to a department store just prior to her death and made the purchase of a $320 shotgun. Immediately after this she had gone to the back of her motor vehicle and fired a fatal shot. Her mother had believed she was going into the mall in order to acquire an electric blanket, but to her horror she found that this was not the case.

JILL Frankenberry Connor is now on a voyage to find some way to make sense of her daughter’s death and improve the lot of others. She wants to aid in removing the weapons from people’s hands, the instruments by which they can commit suicide with such ease. Her drive is to make it more difficult if not impossible for mentally ill people to purchase firearms.

Her own daughter had been receiving treatment for mental illness. Severe depression had plagued the 23-year-old since youth. Jill has made contact with her Senator with a view to the establishment of a database which would carry the names of persons who have a mental illness. She is determined that such a database should be used by arms dealers when an individual is seeking to purchase a gun, and if they are on it that the transaction should not be allowed to take place.

She believes that the database would work best if the name of the person was the only information that could be accessed by the vendor.
