I am new here, been a member for a short time. I have felt like i am too new to even introduce myself, But here i am. I have something i believe will shed some light on a recent topic. I have been diagnosed with bipolar sience i was 22 yrs old, i am now 40. I am not, nor have i ever been harmful to other people. I have on the other hand been harmful to myself. Do i believe i am healthy enough to carry a gun? NO!!! I am and have been level and a productive member of society with lots of friends and family that support me throught my life. But i have been diagnosed with a mental health problem!! I own guns, hand guns and shotguns but my father has them and that is the best place for them. I am a true river rat texan, but even i know that there some people that do not need access to guns all the time!!!

ps. just trying to be helpful with what really needs to be the subject on gun controll.

***MOD NOTE***

The Introduction Forum is for introductions To tell something about you; not to start a thread about a topic.“Intro threads” that are really “topic threads” or spam will be removed.
Welcome to ATS, it’s time to introduce yourself.

I'm sure you'll understand the necessity for us having rules like this. It helps keep all the great threads and topics in their perspective areas of interest and not all lumped together, making it difficult to find when wanting to make additional comments.

Please, after you have managed to get 20 posts under your belt, start your own thread in one of the appropriate areas.

Please refer to below post for more on this....
