LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — In the wake of the weekend's tragedies, many people are asking for answers.

He says that he doesn't think these tragedies have anything to do with gun laws, instead, he says it is time to focus on mental health issues.

"We must reform our mental health laws to better identify mentally disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence," said Bud's Gun Shop and Range General Manager Derek Osborne
