Valli here, it can be hard answering questions in the moment that I had not seen prior to the interview. I need to clear up a comment made in the moment about guns and mental illness. I spoke much too broadly. The reality is, most people with mental illness are no more violent that the population as a whole. Where violence is at increased risk, is with those with untreated psychosis and/or substance abuse. When calling for restrictions on who has guns, I should have been clearer, that I was talking about those in a mental health crisis, and a temporary removal of guns from their possession until they stabilize.

Thanks, Valli Geiger
