Oh, okay. One more post. From the POS Huffington Post:
Days after mass shootings in both of his hometowns, President Barack Obama urged his most ardent supporters Saturday “to get back up and go back at it” and help push stalled legislation out of Congress so dangerous people won’t get their hands on guns.
What the MSM appointed one wants is for his “universal background checks” legislation to finally be approved by Congress. Like most simpleton liberals, he ignores the fact that the Navy Yard shooter passed a background check to purchase his Biden-approved shotgun. He did so because, again, the AMA, doctors, psychiatrists, and liberals in general, demand that we not stigmatize the mentally ill by reporting them to a government database that would restrict their access to purchasing firearms.
There’s no “win-win” in this situation. There are a lot of folks out there who have mental problems. Most are not-at-all violent or violently inclined. But, there are some who are. And, . . . I don’t know what the right answer is. I think that they need to be added to the “don’t sell a gun to” list.
The problems start with the idea that if someone seeks help, they will lose their rights, and that will deter them from, well, seeking help.
The even bigger dilemma is that if they DO seek help, and are helped — cured — how do they retrieve their rights? That is, okay, the doctors say, and I feel, that I’m cured and glad of it. Now, can I buy a gun for self-protection or target shooting, or whatever? How do you get yourself off of that “don’t sell a gun to” list?
It’s easy to speculate and hope that a simple doctor’s note would solve that. Reality says that in a country of 300+ million, it isn’t, and can’t be simple.
Again; I don’t have the answer. Maybe you do. Your thoughts (always a ‘comment killer’ around here) are welcome.
And now, finally, I’m gonna’ take the rest of this Sunday off. May yours be pleasant.
