Please define "Mental Illness" for us.

Our service men who come home with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are classified as having a "Mental Illness". Are you saying it is ok for these brave men to fight your wars but it is not ok for them to protect their families at home with these guns?

You sir have just opened up a can of worms.

Exactly; How many veterans will now foregoe treatment out of fear of losing their rights. I have been treated for ptsd in the past and I have no doubt I will soon be on a list of no go buyers because of it. Doesn't matter that I'm better now or that I take no medication. This is one of the trickiest parts of this whole ordeal. Spreading see something-say somrthing to the medical community is a bad idea.

Liberals trying to "Fix" things invariably make it worse while giving birth to a host of new problems that need their "Solutions". Kind of like prescription drugs - you start with one, but end up taking 17 to counter all of the side-effects. STUPID is as stupid does!

And the morons stand on the sideline cheering their own destruction.

I feel the debate over what is classified as mental illness is just as important as the gun debate itself. It does not matter what gun bans are passed if you can just label someone with a mental illness and stop them from being able to purchase a gun in the first place.

They could classify all of us as "mentally ill". How are you going to fight the allegations, in court? How can you "prove" your sanity, when even the Dr.s are being paid off? Does anyone play chess? It seems as if TPTB are starting to move their Queen around the board. And that's DANGEROUS! Now, we must attack their king or face a checkmate.
