You cant even buy a gun if youve been diagnosed with depression, someone on this very forum talked about how he had to hand his gun over when he was.
I'm not sure if that is true. I am related to someone who is on the books and actively treated for mental illness. He has guns and a permit to carry. Laws do change from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, however I don't live in one of those gun friendly jurisdictions - I live in a city(Philadelphia) with pretty strict gun laws.
At least in some states, such as Cali (the state everyone else follows). Anxiety is another reason to be denied/disarmed... how many people in the US are at some point in their life either A depressed or B anxious.
All of them.
Any limits on guns are unconstitutional btw, even taxes. Any barrier in the way of getting a gun.
What kind of stupid argument is that? Constitution is not the word of god. It's a piece of paper. Do you realize that the US didn't abolish slavery until 13th amendment? That's one entire constitution and 12 amendments and slavery was still legal. How many amendments and laws do you think it takes to put limits on weapons?
See, this is why gun debate makes me puke, views like this.
"The constitution is a piece of paper"
So I guess we should rob you of free speech and everything else guaranteed under it, based on slavery being what built the country and was kinda important at the time, morally accepted across the board.
You dont have guns for hunting, you dont have guns for personal protection.. the reason you have guns is so that when the government passes a law like the NDAA effectively allowing anyone to be jailed for life, for nothing, no evidence, no trial... you can go out and stop it.
The reason they want your guns is so that when they start throwing you in camps you cant fight back. The fathers were kinda clear about it being the most important part and suggesting everything else means dick all if you dont have your guns.
The constitution is just a piece of paper, the founding fathers even stated so.. they made it pretty clear, unless youre willing to use your guns to defend your freedom, you have not nor do you deserve freedom.
If you wont fight, you arent free and dont deserve it, from the fathers themselves. If you give your guns up, you arent a real American and you are betraying your country.
