Ah, so now it is only a matter of deciding who does and who does not have "mental issues"... Imagine you have a daughter with a very violent and
dangerous ex-husband who abused her during the marriage. Since the divorce she has gotten a restraining order, and a firearm to keep her safe, and
more urgently perhaps, to make her FEEL safe. She has not been able to feel that way for a long time... And still is not fully secure in her
surroundings because that's how bad he traumatized her, your darling little angel. But at least now she has a little bit of a sense of security, and
more importantly, HE knows she has armed herself and practiced most weekends at the gun range so she knows how to use it.
It's no longer worth it for him to harass her. She begins to go to counseling when she feels comfortable enough to talk about the things that
happened in those 7 years of hell. Through the people she meets, she is recommended to see a psychiatrist to help her work out some things. He
diagnoses her with some mental issue and her gun is confiscated... She was 100% honest with the good doctor, believing that would allow him to help
her, and also because she had just began to learn to trust people again, especially men, and she told herself that he only wanted to help and it was
ok because he was one of the good ones. But now, even though she has never hurt anyone or even had so much as a speeding ticket, she has been deemed
by the state to be unfit to own a firearm...
The worst part was her ex husband caught wind of her situation. She was a sitting duck to this man's twisted desires once again, and since he never
sought mental help and was lucky enough never to get caught doing anything too serious, he had his right to bear arms still... She had to move back in
with her parents at age 31, because she knew they would protect her, and her younger brother lived nearby. But then, 6 months after the first law was
passed, there was another shooting, at a Walmart.
The mainstream media outlets were telling a tragic story of a mental patient who got released to his parents custody after getting better, and while
he still was not allowed to own a firearm as he was still considered to have "mental issues", his parents owned 2 firearms. Since he was not a
convicted felon, this was not a problem. Reportedly he took these two weapons to the Walmart with him the day of the shooting. New laws had to be
passed. People with "mental issues" were now to be treated the same as felons, and they could not legally live in the same residence where firearms
She had to either move out of her parents home, or subject her entire family to a potential attack from her ex since he would know they cannot be
legally armed. She moves out, hoping he won't find her. She has problems sleeping again like before... Every bump in the night is him, drunk again
and horny, or maybe just angry...alcohol always makes him angry, its just a matter of when.
One night the phone rings, and a creepy voice on the other end starts asking weird random questions... Clearly getting much joy from her torment. It
was him, talking in a weird voice..at times babbling incoherently, but never losing that tone in his voice...that evil sounding tone... he must be
really really drunk. She immediately Hung up and called 911, and they said they would send someone to check it out...she hangs up the phone, feeling
only a little better about it.
Before she can fully ascertain her feelings, the phone rings again... It's him again. He's mad that she hung up on him. She cries out "leave me
alooooone!!!!" And hangs up the phone again. She starts looking out her front window, hoping the police will arrive soon... And also keeping an eye
out for his big red pickup truck with KC lights... The phone rings again... She picks up and says "what do you want!?!?!" It's the 911 operator she
just spoke to, and it sounded very urgent "Ma'am, you need to get out of there right away!!! The calls are coming from INSIDE THE HOUSE!!!!"
