And with attitudes like this people still wonder why they want restrictions . And displaying attitude like this who do you think will be one of their first few targets .
You would actually have a shoot out because they want your gun and take some ones life who is supporting a family .
Are you demented people like you probably should have their guns taken away

who decides what is mental illness? how does one screen for such?
how long before they decide a mental screening is required to apply for a permit/license/registration?
"so why do you want to own a firearm?"
"self defense from whom?"
"anybody attempting to jeopardize my safety and livelihood."
"paranoid schizophrenic. application denied."

It looks like to read you have to subscribe. But going by what you say in the heading, Felons and Mentally ill should not have firearms to begin with. I don't know what planet you live on, but that doesn't sound odd at all. I am pretty sure felons are not allowed to posses firearms now, and i don't think mentally ill should either. I don't think we need blind people or unrepentant alcoholics with a penchant for driving with driver licenses either. I am a pro gun person btw.

Because treating people who went to jail, did their time and are free now, as second class citizens is stupid. It's like a caste system, I do not find that acceptable.
I am different because I will still fight against what I perceive as an enemy of the Constitution,with every skill I know.
American adults don't need or ask permission.
As I asked before, do you think a person who has been found a threat to themself or others should be allowed to own a gun?
