Hillary Clinton Warns of the Danger of Mental Illness and Praises Iran Agreement

During a campaign stop in Ames, Iowa, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton cautioned about the dangerous combination of mental illness and guns. She mentioned the recent deadly Louisiana theatre shooting. A 59-year-old man was identified as the gunman who shot two people in a theatre in Louisiana. The shooter was about to turn the gun on himself but failed as police closed in. He was later committed to a hospital for psychiatric care.

According to Clinton, "We just saw it in a movie theatre in Lafayette, Louisiana. So this is not only a problem about people unable to take care of themselves or their families seeking help, but sometimes they are a danger to themselves and others. So we have to take it seriously." Hillary Clinton also criticized Louisiana’s governor Terry Branstad because he vetoed mental health funding earlier this year.

During her third Iowa visit with seven events scheduled over the next three days, Hillary Clinton said, "We've got to do a better job.” Addressing a crowd of supporters at Iowa State University, she said, "There are 128,000 people in this state alone who have serious mental health problems. And we see what happens when we have mental health problems and guns. We've seen it over and over and over again."

Candidate Hillary Clinton also talked about Iran and the recent nuclear agreement. Clinton said she "didn't trust" Iran, but she didn’t forget to admire the agreement. She said the agreement is "better than the alternative." Clinton continued, "This is an important step in trying to put the lid on Iran's nuclear weapons program." She also quipped, "Is it perfect? No. It was negotiated by human beings. But is it better than the alternative? Yes, it is."
