That was the exact tactic the Soviet Union used to nutralize individuals that the communists thought may cause a problem for them. The central government declared them mentally deficient. After that, the rest of their lives was destroyed.<quoted text>
This idea that we are going to produce a list of the mentally unfit is just a dream.
Putting a person on that list would brand him for life, preventing employment,credit, etc.
Therefore only the worst would be on it.
The recent shooters like in Newtown & the Theater in Col, Columbine, etc would not be on it.
Obama is not closing hospitals.
I think from reading comments here & other places from these gun nuts, the idea that a person thinks they need to own an aresenal of assault rifles is an indicator that they likely need some mental health screening.
I wonder if the mother of the shooter in Newton attempting to have him declared mentally unstable being denied is related to this discussion....
The citizens of the state are of no business of the federal government. The federal government exists to ensure the indivudual rights in the Constitution are not denied by any state.
Today, we have the federal government trying to take the rights away from the citizens of the states.
Now, what's wrong with that picture?
