Property rights are absolute, which also means they are not contingent on the reports or opinions of a state certified Doctors.
And that they are, and I hope they stay that way. I can still have my own opinions on certain parts of it.

Thing is-if they are too much of a danger to themselves or others to own a firearm, they are too much of a danger to own a knife, a bat, gas and matches, propane, etc, etc. Do we propose forced institutionalization to protect society from them-and them from themselves?

isn't that what we did in the past ? how many school shootings happened between the '60's and when we closed those institutions down vs now ? Food for thought.

You betcha!


Everyone and anyone who is an American should be afforded the right to buy, pack, conceal, and carry openly.

Are they humans? Do they have rights? Can they buy swords, knives, slingshots, bows?

YES

If they are mentally fit then hell yes they should be able to own a gun.

You are perfectly correct. We don't have a gun problem, we have a mental problem.

Anyone who is willing to kill people for any pathetic reason needs to be locked up in a mental ward and helped.

Just about every mass shooter (over the last few decades) had red flags waving and warnings coming from people who knew them. It was the authorities lack of motivation to follow through or miscommunication between agencies that were to blame.

Good luck with that!


You are saying in order to have a right you need to prove you are worthy!



FraKTHAT!


Most psychiatrists hate guns so that would quickly become the disarming of a nation.


No thanks!

Exactly! We don't have a gun problem in this nation. We have a people problem. Especially in our most liberal cities. Mentally ill and drug users are allowed to commit crimes, both property and physical assaults, with no repercussions. Violent criminals are let loose time after time with no or minimal prison sentences.

We need to bring back long prison sentences for criminals and forced institutionalization of the mentally ill and drug abusers (after a court adjudication to determine their competency). Of all the bad, damaging ideas of liberals, closing mental institutions and turning the mentally ill lose on our streets was perhaps the worst and most harmful.
