My issue there is that we get back into the insincerity of many of those mental health diagnosis. It also negates the very real, very much covered up
thanks to lobbying efforts misuse and dangers of SSRI drugs.
Take PTSD for example... I'd wager that anyone who comes home from a theater of war without PTSD is the individual who has serious mental health
issues. Yet we have heard many left leaning politicians push for banning firearm ownership for anyone with a diagnoses of PTSD. There's no rationale
to this as (at least prior to the HIPPA Act's obfuscation of these statistics and factors) the only PTSD sufferers who went off the rails were the
ones taking the SSRI poisons that are so goddamned deadly the meds, themselves, caution users of "thoughts of violence and suicide" as not only known
side effects, but common side effects.
On another front here, we routinely incarcerate people who are determined to be a danger to society and/pr to themselves following any violation of
the law. An excellent example is Charles Manson. Manson never personally killed anyone, so by the letter of the law he should have been released
years ago, yet he remains incarcerated because he is seen as a potential danger to society. So you're telling me it's better to infringe on the
Rights of 80% of the population where the 2nd is concerned (and yeah, I'm talking 80% of the entire population because, regardless of how many
Americans actually own firearms, all Americans have the enumerated Right to do so in absence of due process removing that Right on a case by case
basis.) than to simply incarcerate anyone deemed too dangerous to safely possess a firearm? Why stop there, by the way? A car can be and has been
used as a weapon, so those with mental illness probably shouldn't be allowed to own or drive a car. Knives... rope... baseball bats... hell, even
fists can be used to kill someone, so if someone is truly mentally ill enough to pose a danger as a firearm owners, I'd argue they don't belong on the
streets in any capacity as a free human being and should be behind bars for society's safety, not used as an excuse to infringe on the Rights of the
sane and healthy.
