if hippa stands and not every one is sure it will they have zero right to know who is mentally ill at all unless some one admits it
to be clear being mentaly ill on its self is not enough to disqualify you from fire arms ownership you have to have been forcibly committed against
your will (you can check your self in as long as you dont say you wanted to off your self) for a 72 hour hold(there is a term for it but i cant
remember off hand)
i have bipolar axis 5 and yet magicly i have not spontaneously burst in to rage and shoot up people or ever hurt a child or even contemplated such
heinous actsfunny how good impulse control can keep you out of trouble dispite a mental illness.
if im in a bad mood or manic i eat some food and smoke a cigaret and just take a few deep breaths. only been in three fights in my hs days and
because i have zero criminal record my firearm rights are intact,and the only time i have ever been in a mental hospital is when i worked at one.
i have an extensive arsenal ranging from antique black powder weapons all the way up to a crank fired grunov(belt fed semi automatic tripod mounted
weapon that fires like an auto w a crank like a Gatling gun)
funny you hear the calls and bellows of "shal not be infringed" from most of the right and yet it seems it should be presented with an asterisk now
and be "shal not infringe*" unless your mentaly ill a minority or could potentaly look scary to some person at some place in the world.
all this persecution and stigma pointed at the mentally ill community is gonna accomplish is less people getting treatment for fear of loosing their
second amendment rights and or just ignore treatment all together and by doing that you are insuring that the FEW vocal members of the mentally ill
comunity that would have been caught in treatment (for talking about wanting to go off a bunch of people for example) and drive them underground where
they will only show up on peoples radar when they light them up with a most likely stolen firearm.
you want to do anything involving this issue with the mentally ill community actually DO something when one of them says they are gonna go nuts and
shoot a bunch of people instead of ignoring it until they snap. but when one of them says that they do have plans to go nuts and the apparent means
to do it then and only then throw the fracking book at them and lock them up BEFORE they act instead of just waiting to see if they are serious and
even this would be hard from a medical privacy stand point.
i know slightly off topic but this is something i take seriously if we look at the bulk of the shooters that were confirmed mentally ill what was one
of the more common trends? they wrote frigging essay length manifestos stating their intentions and no one did anything. from lanza to brevick to
rogers the one in santa barbra with the full on anti woman "im gonna kill you all rants" they gave out signs for years and yet no one acted and we
all get surprised when some one that has stated intent to commit a crime actually went out and did one and with the recent shooting in washington what
was his twitter filled with? veiled threats and a person obviously on the verge of snapping and yet no one did anything about it until after they
strike and then the cries of those dangerously mentally ill people come back to full force and thus the stigma starts and the cycle begins again.
and as one final point the crux of the matter on the individuals who do snap is usually the same too,they feel isolated sad depressed and like society
has given up on them and because of this they see a mass shooting as there only chance for recognition and fame beyond their tedious sad lives so to
them once they reach a certain point they decide well no one ever listened to me or noticed me so im gonna write a crazy letter and then take my rage
out on the world and thus the media gives them in death what they could not gain in life....attention fame and their name ringing from the roof tops
and to them they would not be un-notcied or ignored any longer,this is not to excuse them in anyway shape or form just explain that when we plaster
this stuff all over the media in 24 hour cycles we are giving them the motivation to commit these crimes by showing them the only way they will ever
get attention is violence . stopping this group is much easier next time (and dont kid your self there will be next times) instead of telling their
side of the story and why they snapped and plastering their name and photo all over the place give them nothing but the anominity they had in their
twisted sad tortured lives.no fame no recognition no even using their names and that the only attention they should get is from the coroner who
autopsy the corpse in hopes of identifying what DOES make a true mass killer snap and what can be done to prevent such things.
