Casey stated that the United States is experiencing a mental health crisis and not a firearms problem. We have a mental disease problem in our country, not a gun problem. This should be our primary objective,’ she said. The pair has five children, with four being his and two being hers. She stated, “I find it comforting to know that if something were to occur, we could protect ourselves.” The source of fear is the unknown. Our family is well-versed in firearms and firearm safety.’ They are aware that firearms are not toys and must be taken very seriously. The earlier that proper guns handling is taught, the better,’ she continued.
