Rashmi Seneviratne with Protect Minnesota says police “are not the one end-all, be-all answer”:

“It’s the root cause:  It’s mental health.  It’s after-school programs.  It’s background checks….  In Minnesota, 68 percent of gun deaths are suicides.”

She says, in the case of the mass shooting at the Saint Paul bar, she’s not sure “how police on the outside could have helped.”
