All these men banned from having guns.....

If I remember correctly....any solider who has been deemed to have a mental disability is also now banned from gun ownership?
So I'm a little terrified at this number.

They can make up

all the stupid laws they want to.That doesn't mean we have
to abide by them.When the people get pissed off enough
all these rules will go out the window!

Willingness to take up arms to actually defend the Constitution

would no doubt be ruled defacto evidence of mental imbalance.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

The Bill

We need to find the bill and exactly how it is stated that PTSD will prevent people from having guns. Then, McCain has to have it-considering the "horrible" things he went through. He should not be allowed to have his finger on the "red" button.

well I'll be damned.....

THAT is an EXCELLENT point. I mean he was a prisoner of war, and tortured no less....he's gotta have PTSD!!!!

And I agree with a post below....this is just a ploy to make sure our TRAINED americans can't pick up arms in defense of America in a DOMESTIC situation.

Why do I always feel like we're playing chess with the government....

I don't believe it is law

I don't believe it is law just yet, but I recall something about a bill being proposed near the end of last summer in regards to this. As far as I recall, the bill proposed PERMANENTLY banning soldiers who have experienced combat situations or those suffering from post traumatic stress disorder from ever again owning a gun.

I wonder if the new recruiting marketing slogan will be something like "Join the military and lose your right to keep and bear arms for the rest of your life..."

Permanent bans, even after someone recovers, is about as bad as telling a 20 year old that it's okay for them to die in battle but they are not allowed to have a single beer.

Edited to add: I just checked and it appears as if this law may have been passed back in January. Here's an article about the issues with this law: http://www.newswithviews.com/Pratt/larry81.htm

Would that include Bush the Alcoholic?

If he can't have any guns, how can he be CIC with all the guns they have?

LOL

I have been following this

and also really pisses me off. The are disarming them because they know these guys are going to be needed to be disarmed if we go into martial law. Obama mentioned in one of the debates that we need to do a better job at diagnosing PTSD. To the uninformed that sounded wonderful. to the informed it scares the hell out of me.

Yes, this is definitely

Yes, this is definitely quite troubling to say the least.

This makes me MAD.

It takes alot to get me angry but this does it...

My mothers really good high school friend has a son that came back from Iraq two weeks ago. The guy was my age. He survived iraq only to kill himself a few days ago. This devistated his whole family including his fiance.

Posttraumatic stress disorder (SHELL SHOCK) is just a Godd@mned bureacratic euphemism to make it okay to just pass these boys off and appease the masses to thinking it's okay.

I don't even want to go into how big the suicide rate has become with troops and vets.

We can all say what needs to be done, but who here led by example today?
