Should we try to prevent homicidal maniacs from having guns?

    My nephew tonight said that maybe getting a gun should be like a job interview. If you can't come up with "x" number of people to say you are not dangerous, no gun for you.
    If everybody who knows you thinks you are too unstable to have a gun......:whistling:, maybe there is a reason for it.

    You can't come up with 2 people who think you aren't crazy, can you?

    I'm just messing around, btw.

    If you mean I would have to provide references in order to practice my constitutional rights, then no thanks.

    I think we should get the Pre-Cogs from Minority Report to make the decisions. But the Beretta 9000S should be banned on account of being too bulky for an assault weapon. :whistling:

    Ask your nephew if we should have X number of people also agree that we can worship whatever religion we want. Or, how about getting enough people to vouch that we're OK to vote.

    Yeah, didn't think so. No, you can tell him and anyone else asking or opining that we gun owners are fed up with this bull****.

    If this were to be the case, then the requirements should then be the same for getting a Drivers License, for the right to purchase a car and the right to vote. Get 'X' number of people to swear you are a "good voter" then see what the standards for good voter, competent car owner and "good driver" are.

    So, we take our unalienable rights, codified by the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and make them susceptible and able to be summarily discharged by the mere thought of another man? No thanks OP.




































































    Actually, let me rephrase and say, "**** you OP!!!" :steamed:

    That's true. It might not be looking so good for me making a living.

    Thank G-d the Constitution/Bill of Rights secures an American Citizen's right to travel free of any restrictions, which in my humble opinion, includes the Driver's License.

    The modern American DL entrance program is merely a tangential form of, "let me see your papers please," held over from Germany's third reich's dictatorship.

    Travel - drive. No real difference there, well except for the automobile. I am sure pretty soon some competent court will rule drivers licenses Unconsitutional. Or perhaps not.

    We should have an "Asylum List" if you have ever been committed, updated monthly. Period. Then you would have to have someone with an MD sign off saying such, that same MD would then be held responsible if you have a psychotic break.

    And... AND....

    Then, let's take that info, put it in an Online Database so that it's easy to get to...

    Yah, that makes a whole lot of sense!!!

    Sure, they promise that this will run on an Apple computer which is *impervious* to attack.

    Really...


    Pffffftttt...

    Maybe Morals, Accountability, and Responsibility should be taught instead of Empowerment for those who haven't Earned it yet...

    Naaaawww ... That would never work.

    Sheesh.

    So your going to teach morals, accountability, and responsibility to someone with Schizo disorders, Dissociative or Bi-Polar disorders, anti-social behaviors or any of the major 'manias'. Everyone of which have a break in basic empathy towards other people. In short you can't teach this or reach these people.

    You have a background check done when you purchase your firearm, I would include an actual 'crazy' portion. You and I don't need access to it, nor does the public, but the FBI handles 99% of the information, this would simply get tacked on.

    I'm talking about a realistic approach to curtailing a problem.

    @ http://www.americanprogress.org/.
    or same report @http://www.nami.org/

    I got it, the last two majors have been involved stolen firearms, but the number of people who have been committed be it voluntarily or involuntarily is absent from NICS background checks.

    This isn't about taking your rights, or someone telling you can't have, and your foolish if you interpret this as such. The OP asks if the freaking mentally ill should be able to own a firearm. The answer is no, but we aren't checking.

    Apparently, with his sickening grotesque gut, the vegan lifestyle is not working for him.
