Thread: Should mentally disturbed people be able to buy guns?

    The same process already does apply. You can't bring a firearm to an involuntary committal.

    I'm quite sure the suggestion here is that if you have a condition in the dsm you pose a danger to society and that is not true. In fact as my link shows, your more likely to be a victim of violent crime.

    Is the goal really to make a vulnerable population even more vulnerable? Are you afraid that the guy with an extra chromosome down the street might shoot you for harmlessly bullying him?
    A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep

    “Indeed, a major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it… gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.” - Milton Friedman

    Suicide is the highest cause of gun deaths in this country. We could save lives if we removed guns from clinically depressed people until they are stable. A psychiatrist should make this call

    Also allowing a person that has paranoid delusions that people are trying to kill him have a gun is ridiculous. But we allow that in the usa

    Well seeing as they just repealed a law that does nothing but prohibited people who have been deemed mentally unstable with violent tendencies by a license Phsychogist, from buying or owning guns, I can't think of anything except that they simply want guns in the hands of crazy people.

    If they had their way, Adam Lanza wouldn't have needed to steal his mom's guns to go kill those kids at Sandy Brook. He would have been able to own his own with no issues at all.

    One of the principles of a free society with true liberty is minimum legislation as possible. The more laws there are the less freedom for individual citizens. If you outlaw mentally ill people from purchasing guns, will you outlaw them from buying matches and gasoline? The latter can cause considerable more harm than the former.

    No just guns. There are not a high number of suicides with gas and matches

    What's going on here? Why would Congress do such an obviously stupid thing?
    The NRA owns them and tells them what to do.....the real question should be why does the NRA think it's a good idea?

    LOL, typical left wing authoritarianism. Banning guns from people that have not been deemed mentally ill. In case you missed it we normally believe in innocent until proven guilty. It is an essential building block of a free society. Your rant has nothing to do with the NEW Obama EO.

    MSNBC BRZEZINSKI: ‘OUR JOB’ IS TO CONTROL ‘EXACTLY WHAT PEOPLE THINK’

    The Democrat Party, its Media serfs, and Social Justice Incorporated are all outraged because we uppity normals are again presuming to rule ourselves, and their agony is delightful.
