NRA pushing to "keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill"Submitted by dwalters on Sun, 01/13/2013 - 15:42
The NRA has been co-opted by gun control advocates. First, the NRA was pushing for a TSA style agency to condition acceptance of the police state by children attending government schools. Now, the NRA is pushing to give the Central Government the power to label those that they disagree with as "mentally ill" in order to disarm them.
A recent article published at xfinity.comcast.net says:
The NRA, instead, is pushing for measures that would keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill, until a person gets better.
I imagine "getting better" involves pledging support to a tyrannical State that is trying to void Americans' - inalienable - 2nd Amendment rights.
Here's the full article: http://xfinity.comcast.net/articles/news-general/20130113/US...
What will be the definition of "mentally ill"? "Extremely" religious? Regularly opposes authority? Depressed? Overly anxious? Too outspoken? Veterans that suffer from PTSD?
I say to hell with the NRA. I suggest those that truly want to support the 2nd Amendment withdraw their participation from the NRA and join the GOA. Use your free market vote to punish the NRA.
