Joint Chiefs Suggest North Korean Invasion-

A letter sent to a congressman has revealed an option to deal with North Korea that concerns many.

Rear Admiral Michael Dumont laid out the opinion on behalf of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in a letter to Congressman Ted Lieu. Lieu asked about a potential conflict and Dumont responded "The only way to 'locate and destroy - with complete certainty - all components of North Korea's nuclear weapons programs' is through a ground invasion."

The letter went on to suggest a classified briefing to discuss matters. The Joint Chiefs of Staff directly advise the president of the United States on military matters.

President Trump says the Texas mass shooting shows the need for better mental health treatment, not more gun control.

Trump told reporters at a news conference in Tokyo that the heavily armed man who killed more than two-dozen people at a small church near San Antonio was deranged man and should have received treatment.

Former FBI Special Agent Clint Watts disagrees and tells MSNBC's "Morning Joe" guns are in fact part of the problem and need to become part of the conversation.
