Guns are ok but they should not be allowed internet access.

"Worried Mom "No.
We need to protect our children."

Why don't you let responsible citizens like me own guns then? I have Aspergers, and am a responsible gun owner. I plan to have kids someday, and I should e able to protect them with and raise them around firearms just like anyone else can. If the government doesn't like that I don't care. Stop using your ignorance as a reason to Spey your bigotry everywhere.

There is no single treatment, and the effectiveness of particular interventions is supported by only limited data.[1] Intervention is aimed at improving symptoms and function. The mainstay of management is behavioral therapy, focusing on specific deficits to address poor communication skills, obsessive or repetitive routines, and physical clumsiness.[12] Most children improve as they mature to adulthood, but social and communication difficulties may persist.
You can look at people like Adam Lanza and see the insanity in their eyes. We need to protect our children from the insane.
Maybe bigoted people like you shouldn't be allowed to vote or have guns. Just because we approach things differently doesn't mean that we are all insane.

This means that you shouldn't be able to have weapons. If your iq is below the 150 range, you are restarted compared to me. Yes: I have Aspergers, and my iq is 152

I have Aspergers, a lot of you people seem to think this means I am retarded/wear a drool cup/ride the short bus or that I'm a few screws loose, and you couldnt be farther from the truth. The truth is, through years of being bullied and excluded by everyone around me for being different I've learned to act and behave exactly like one of you, well not exactly, i couldnt act as racist and blatantly stupid as a good portion of you but youd have to sped a lot of time with me before i came across as a bit off to you. As with most disorders, serverity varies from person to person and therefore firearm ownership should vary person to person and not blanket over or discriminate vast amounts of the population. A lot of you here are just spouting politcal things you heard/read from nut jobs that either shouldn't own guns themselves or don't want anyone to own a gun. I feel i as an individual should be allowed to own a gun because I'm not stupid enough to even think about shooting someone even in self defense, in a self defense situation, my hypothetical gun as a hypothetical responsible gun owner, is in my hypothetical gun safe and i can hardly ask Mr or Mrs bugler/mugger to allow me to go to my safe and key in my combination, i would not be stupid enough to keep the gun on myself because in a high stress situation, theres a good chance i may miss and hit something or someone I don't want to hit. I want a gun solely for Target shooting, and occasionally, boar hunting, because I like me some bbq boar ribs.

The question asked "Should persons with Asperger's syndrome be allowed to own firearms?"

After reading your comment I'd have to vote No. I'll be in touch with my state representatives on Monday about this problem too. You need to be disarmed and medicated.

People with Aspergers are high functioning, we would never try to hurt someone, we are intelligent and a lot more people have it than you may think, may people go most of their life without knowing, the way it effects me is I have a hard time with people, I talk a lot and people don't like that so I am a little socially awkward, sometimes I say to much, I process knowledge fast and graduated top of my class because of my Aspergers, and I think so fast that sometimes my thoughts are all over the place, especially in a long paragraph, but I would never be a threat to anyone, I have morals, Aspergers doesn't take away your morals, saying I should buy a gun because I have Aspergers and might hurt someone is like saying someone who's over weight shouldn't be able to buy at pet because they might eat the animal, the second one doesn't really make much since to you now does it, just like the first one don't make since to us, don't believe everything you read on the Internet, we at not the least bit more likely to be any more dangerous that a person born "normal", don't believe the misconception about us, in fact it wasn't detected in me until I was an adult and by the way I'm very safe with a gun, even if it's not loaded, has the slide racked back, no magazine in it and is locked I still wouldn't point it at anyone because I know better, I was taught to always hold a gun and act as if was loaded, I've had a gun for a few years and never once has it ever been pointed at a person and never once have I intended/wanted to cause harm to anyone, I'll be the first person to protect your child if someone bad does point a gun at your child, in fact I plan on going to school to be a fire fighter, an EMT, and a police officer, my Aspergers won't hold me back, in fact may people believe that Aspergers could be the beginning of people evolving into a new species.

I have Aspergers too, I'm a responsible gun owner, I like target shooting, I would never try to shoot someone (unless it was a my life or theirs situation), I've dealt with the bulling too, when I was in school even the teachers bullied me, if I don't tell people I have Aspergers they would never know, the would just think I talk to much and give away to much personal information away

People with Aspergers are not mentally unstable so than you shouldn't have a problem with it.

These people are extreme geeks and nerds, super intelligent but angry tool making them walking time bombs ready to explode.

Dykan Kelbod, Harris, Colorado movie freak and Lanza were all like this, outcast and werid people who are dangerous. Beware the geek.
Not all people with Aspergers are angry, in fact most people with Aspergers are not angry, it is a possibility, but they will show signs at a young age and they may ever grow out of the being angry part, by the way just because we're intelligent doesn't mean that we're all geeks and nerds, did you ever think that maybe the criminals that have Aspergers might just have something else that has made them screwy in the head?

If it is made illegal for those with Aspergers to buy guns I will buy them illegally. I shouldn't be under the control of those who age IQs lower than mine, and I have every right to protect myself as well as hunt or just go shooting with the boys.
I agree with your statement in the fact that I believe people with a lower IQ than me should not have the right to take away my gun rights do to the fact that I have Aspergers and I don't think anyone. In congress has a higher IQ that me, my IQ is 150, which is in the genius range and our congress deffinently ain't full of geniuses, in fact their IQ is probably on the other side of the IQ spectrum lol, I don't believe that someone that is not close to being as smart as I am should have a say in what I can and can't do.
