The mentally ill have rights too!

I've always said that people need to be careful when defending gun rights or they risk galvanizing support for trampling the rights of the mentally ill. We're seeing it now. Since they've been denied gun control legislation, they're turning on an even more vulnerable segment of the population that unlike gunowners, doesn't have much of an organized lobbying group defending them.
