Dead wrong

D. Martyn Lloyd-Morgan of The Liberty Sphere nails it:

North Carolina is proof positive that the so-called ‘nay-sayers’ and ‘NRA bashers’ such as the GOA and the JPFO were 100% correct on this issue.

I maintained all along that despite my general and longtime support for the NRA, they got this one DEAD WRONG.

Thus, in North Carolina, if you ever go to the doctor with depression so severe that you have suicidal thoughts and have to be placed in a mental facility, you are banned from owning firearms for life. If you are a U.S. war veteran who served your country and because of post-traumatic stress syndrome your depression and anxiety are so overwhelming that you have to be hospitalized due to your fleeting desire to die, sorry, bud, but you will never be able to own a firearm again. The ‘fleeting desire to die’ is referred to in medical circles as passive suicidal-homicidal ideation.

And not only that, but your name will be entered into the dreaded national database where you will automatically recognized as ‘too nutty to own a gun.’

One of the firsts posts I made to this blog focused on this topic.

It is common (see here, for example) for an accused “mental defective” to be involuntary committed for 72 hours so that he or she can be “assessed.” Three days of involuntary committment. You’re miraculously assessed as “normal.” Too late. You were already involuntarily committed. You’re in the database.

In his book The Myth of Mental Illness, psychiatry professor Thomas Szasz, M.D., says “It is customary to define psychiatry as a medical specialty concerned with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of mental illnesses. This is a worthless and misleading definition. Mental illness is a myth. Psychiatrists are not concerned with mental illnesses and their treatments. In actual practice they deal with personal, social, and ethical problems in living” (Dell Pub. Co., 1961, p. 296). According to the cover article in the July 6, 1992 Time magazine, schizophrenia is the “most devilish of mental illnesses” (p. 53). But in his book Against Therapy, published in 1988, Jeffrey Masson, Ph.D., a psychoanalyst, says “There is a heightened awareness of the dangers inherent in labeling somebody with a disease category like schizophrenia, and many people are beginning to realize that there is no such entity” (Atheneum/Macmillan Pub. Co., 1988, p. 2). If there is no such entity as mental illness, can laws which authorize incarcerating people not because they have performed unlawful acts but merely because they have “mental illness” be constitutional?

This is just another method they have cleverly discovered to skirt The Most Fundamental Right. They have failed (for now) to get the Supreme Court to annul it by declaring it “collective.” Cartridge micro-stamping is proving to be a farce (as we knew it would), taxes on ammunition aren’t very popular among the unwashed masses, and the masses can still purchase highly effective firearms despite their best efforts.

So they strike at the root, and the root is us.

You can’t have a gun, because you’re mentally unstable.

How are you mentally unstable?

A gun can be used to kill, therefore desiring one makes you a threat to yourself and others.

Desire for a gun is the first sign of mental instability.

It will come to this. Prepare for it.

By the way, I’m adding The Liberty Sphere to my blogroll.
