Mental Illness = No Gun(?)

Not necessarily.  🙂

From Claire:

Despite using annoying “gun violence” language, this CNN article brings the good news that mental health professionals aren’t likely to sit still for Obama administration attempts to label every mentally ill person as too dangerous to own a firearm. With statistics, even!

I know there is a meme out there wherein the gummint is actively pursuing all avenues to make firearms ownership difficult, complex, and ne’er impossible.

I believe this to be true.

However (see above).

  1. From the CNN link: It’s a phrase that frequently appears in his research and journal articles to emphasize the point that fixing the mental health system is not a silver bullet for reducing gun violence, he said. It takes multiple approaches, many of which have nothing to do with the mentally ill.

    Until someone gets serious about reducing criminal violence by NOT focusing on their tools but on the person committing the crime, all this “gun control” claptrap is what people do when they don’t want to focus on the REAL problem.
    Violent. Gang. Drug. Dealers.

  2. Someday, some talking head will lose his or her place on the TeleprompTer & state that majority of firearm deaths are gang shootings. He or she will be fired on the spot.
