I can understand how some people shouldn't own guns. But as someone who was on this list of not being able to purchase a gun I'm a bit angry my 2nd

I hunt and I live in a dangerous neighborhood. I need my 2nd amendment right for protection and putting food on my table. I have a severe mental
illness. I might be crazy but I'm not stupid. The last place I would want to end up is in jail with a mental illness. I have schizophrenia and I've

a mental illness. I'd be more worried about the guy with an IQ of 80 robbing people. There's no shortage of them around here.
Here is a article that talks about violence and schizophrenia.
