Hi Everyone,

iVillage will be moderating a special "Open Questions" live town hall with Vice President Biden's chief of staff, Bruce Reed, on gun control this Friday, from 3p ET to 330p ET. As you know, Vice President Biden has been leading the president's task force on gun violence, and so his chief of staff is right on the front lines of this debate.

Reply to this post to submit your question, post one on Twitter using @iVillage and the hashtags #WHChat and #SOTU, or leave your question on Facebook.
 
And be sure to join us live Friday/3p ET to 330p ET to see if your questions are asked and answered. You can check out the live townhall on iVillage and also on whitehouse.gov/SOTU.

"Put as much effort into mental health services as you are gun control and you might see a difference."

I completely agree. Mental illness is a seriously overlooked problem in this country and we need to address it. On your other point, do you also think we should be able to bring box cutters and knives onto planes because they're not the problem, terrorists are. We should allow knives on planes and address the problem by converting terrorists?

Guns aren't the problem-people are. You can control all the guns in the world but you can't control the people. Put as much effort into mental health services as you are gun control and you might see a difference.
