What Definition of Mental Illness Do the Gun Grabbers Want To Use
 
Not all that many years ago homosexuality was an official mental illness*. Psychiatry is very unreliable and rather prone to being pushed around depending upon current events.

At one time Homosexuals were considered mentally ill

Women that thought for themselves were considered mentally ill.. where do you think the term Hysteria came from.

Hysteria, in its colloquial use, describes unmanageable emotional excesses. People who are "hysterical" often lose self-control due to an overwhelming fear that may be caused by events in one's past, Originally defined as a neurotic condition peculiar to women


at one time this would mean that women could not have owned a firearm.

Not as if government agents are above framing people either. Here's one notorious case from Arizona. The woman was on death row for years, the Ninth Circuit threw the conviction out recently yet Arizona thinks they have a leg to stand on and are asking for reversal. They won't let an innocent woman go.

I've had little contact in my life with police or prosecutors working their jobs, but what little I have had tells me do not trust these people. what was that guys name that went after the lacross team, nifong? I don't think he was by any means unique

There is no definition. This bill, which will never pass as written, will have injunctive relief the moment someone can show harm. The avenues of lawsuits are limitless.

Well, I'd start out with someone who called those who want Gun Laws in this nation to insure background checks on the sale of all guns as "gun grabbers" to start with.

I think the mental health community pretty much has those who would be incompetent or at risk for having a gun and using a gun. don't you?

These attempts by the right to shut down any common sense discussion of gun control laws is getting pretty lame.

your first comment disproves everything else you have to say on the subject. Use of "mental health" diagnostic abuses has a long infamous history among totalitarians

The past is the past. Your strawman use of homosexuality being ONCE declared as a mental illness neglected to mention the push by the same corporate right wing religious groups in the past. It no LONGER is considered a mental illness, is it?

Your use of the term "gun grabbers" indicate a person so paranoid at the thought of a discussion about gun control, they make up boogeymen words to deflect the discussion. how is that NOT mentally ill?
