What is the definition of mentally ill?
Who gets to declare someone mentally ill?
How do you get off the "mentally ill" list and regain your 2nd Amendment rights?
Yeah, that's exactly why you don't strip god given rights away from law abiding citizens. Period. ****ing with it in the first place is abuse. So, if we're going to follow this fallacy down the rabbit hole the mentally ill are a smaller, more manageable population than gun owners. Strictly from a logistical standpoint I'd the tyrannistas insist on stripping rights do it for the smaller of the two populations.
He'll, if you really want to lower gun violence just make it illegal for black men under the age of 25 to possess a firearm of any kind. We know gun violence is worst in urban areas and most often committed by black youth. I mean since we're exploring the fundamentally ****ed here let's at least get some results from this exercise.
“You may think RaiderH8r is just a thinker. But I’m not just a thinker. I’m a doer. Every day I go out there, and rev that engine, fire it up, grab a hold of that line between speed and chaos, and wrestle it to the ground like a demon cobra. And when the fear rises up in my belly, I use it. Fear is powerful, because it’s been there for billions of years. And it is good. And I use it. And I ride it; I ride it like a skeleton horse through the gates of hell.”
