  1. Back off of our gun rights!! This is not Nazi Germany!!

    • What will constitute serious mental illness and who will get to decide this? Definition of mental illness: “Any of various conditions characterized by impairment of an individual's normal cognitive, emotional, or behavioral functioning, and caused by social, psychological, biochemical, genetic, or other factors, such as infection or head trauma. Also called emotional illness, mental disease, and mental disorder.” “Any of various psychiatric disorders or diseases, usually characterized by impairment of thought, mood, or behavior.” Now just how many American citizens would fall into these categories; that have at least at one time or another in their lives, been treated for a so called mental illness?

      • Such as depression or bi-polar disorder? Are we going to limit “psychotic disorders, schizophrenics, personality disorders, and dissociative disorders?” Or over time, what will eventually happen is that they will include any/all so called mental illness, to exclude one from their legal rights to purchase a firearm, such as “anxiety disorders, OCD’s, phobias, mood disorders, eating disorders, impulse control and addition disorders, adjustment disorder, factitious disorders, somatoform disorders, and/or tic disorders?” And we mustn’t forget the “sexual and gender disorders!” How about that, and they are legalizing gay marriage! Using mental illness as an excuse is nothing more than a farce to get your gun rights! How stupid do they really think we are?
