“Red flag” laws are Unconstitutional and don’t work. Here’s what just might …

Walk the Talk America is a suicide-prevention initiative founded by people within the gun industry. Its mission is to fund research for the promotion of mental health, and to reduce the misconceptions and prejudices that exist when it comes to mental illness and firearms. The idea is to raise awareness that suicide prevention is most effective at the personal and community level … not state and national legislatures. “Red flag” laws that permit the police to confiscate a citizen’s guns when he or she has committed no crime are clear violations of our Constitution. WTTA has some better ideas, and today, Chattanooga Shooting Supplies has boosted WTTA to the tune of $20K.

WTTA is paving the way for educating mental health professionals about gun culture and breaking down the negative stigmas around mental health for gun owners. Through its various programs and offerings, such as instructional flyers and slides for firearms instructors, classes in Cultural Competence, and Introductory Courses in The Intersection of Guns and Mental Health, WTTA is leading the conversation and opening doors throughout the firearms industry and mental health industry.

“We are humbled by CSSI’s generous donation and support and proudly welcome them as our newest Silver Sponsor,” Michael Sodini, WTTA founder, said. “With every donation, we can provide more tools and resources to individuals, companies, and retailers. Our goal is to bring together not only the firearms industry and mental health resources but to make them available to all firearms owners. Donations like this from CSSI help to support our mission and we couldn’t do what we do without companies like CSSI.”

WTTA, the brainchild of Sodini, a firearms industry veteran, spearheaded a movement within the firearms industry to bridge the gap between mental health and responsible firearm ownership to reduce suicide by firearm and gun violence. Through educational programs, podcasts, and training programs, WTTA is paving the way for educating mental health professionals about gun culture and breaking down the negative stigmas around mental health for gun owners. Through its various programs and offerings, such as instructional flyers and slides for firearms instructors, classes in Cultural Competence, and Introductory Courses in The Intersection of Guns and Mental Health, WTTA is leading the conversation and opening doors throughout the firearms industry and mental health industry.
