Mental Health And Gun Control.
Everyone should quit using the “Mental Health” argument to defend the pro-gun community.
There is NO “authority” that should be able to say that someone else is not “NORMAL”.
Who defines “normal”? Who defines “mental illness”? These are not words or phrases that I feel have finite meaning. They are “judgments” that are arrived at from an individuals opinion.
Would someone be considered “mentally ill” because they have a fear of spiders?, fear of heights?, fear of cars?, fear of guns? Where is the finite standard that “normal” is based upon?
What about “temporary insanity?” It works in the courts right now. Is it possible to be “temporarily” insane? If so then can you “permanently” revoke an individuals rights for a “temporary” condition?
Is it possible to “prevent” insanity? Can one honestly hope to “deter” a potential action that will “later” be determined an act performed by an individual whom was “insane”?
First we must admit that ALL living beings are capable of what we will label “evil” for the purposes of this discussion.
The ability to differentiate “right” from “wrong” is supposed to be the common ideal utilized for discovering an individuals “sanity”.
I feel this is a flawed concept. “Right” and “Wrong” are directly proportionate to the each individuals personal point of view.
Is it “wrong” or “right” to kill another living creature to ensure your own survival? Would your answer change if we specified EXACTLY which living creature we are referring too?
The 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution recognizes the natural right of people to keep and bear arms.
Not only is it recognized but it is directly supported by specifically stating that this right shall NOT be infringed.
This leads us to a point where we see that by declaring someone unable to practice their natural right because of an “undefinable” characteristic is not only futile, and counter productive. It is a VIOLATION of their RIGHTS, and ILLEGAL!
But wait a minute! How can we be sure that those that intend to do “evil” are prevented from doing so?
GET OVER IT!
We have already established that ALL living beings have the capacity for “evil”. If an individual chooses to relinquish themselves to “evil” actions. There is NO PREVENTATIVE!.
Many of you will think this article is “wrong”. Does that make the writer “evil”?
Each individual has the natural RIGHT to defend themselves from harm.
It doesn’t matter if someone chooses to use labels such as “mentally ill”, dumb, stupid, retarded, ignorant, crazy, insane, psychotic, or any other descriptive “catch word”.
If one is confronted with an individual whom would choose to perform an act that violates their RIGHTS. Then one retains the RIGHT to defend themselves.
Quit using the “Mental Health” argument. We have RIGHTS and they are NOT subject to “interpretation”.
NO MORE COMPROMISE! JUST SAY NO!
The right to defend ourselves against violation of our rights, includes a governing body that decides to violate the rights of the people.
If they attempt to introduce LAW that violates the rights of the people, the people have the RIGHT to defend themselves.
The Constitution recognizes our natural right and declares specific support for that right and that it SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.
If any government body attempts to pass law that violates the declarations of the Constitution they are simply engaging in tyranny and imposing an act of treason.
The United States Declaration of Independence is just as important NOW as it was when it was submitted to the previous oppressive government.
It should once again be utilized for the current governing body to ensure that they remember the foundation of the COUNTRY they are supposed to be supporting.
I love my COUNTRY! I have declared my allegiance to my COUNTRY NOT to the government.
I will defend myself against ANY attacks on my RIGHTS! I will defend my COUNTRY and the United States Constitution that recognizes and supports my rights.
