Breezy Point: Weapons, education discussed
Emily resident Kent Rees said at the Breezy Point forum that firearms, knives, baseball bats and other weapons of violence must be addressed, as well as the way mentally ill people are handled and treated.
He told the story of his recovering granddaughter, who was stabbed three times by a mentally ill person while pumping gas at a gas station in another city.
“We have a violence problem,” he said. “You get a different perspective to it when it occurs directly to you.”
