I can't really give you a good answer. It's a slippery slope to say the least. The problem with is the degrees of mental health issues. A depression isn't on the same level as a psychotic schizophrenic, but I'm sure you have legislators that want anybody sent in to see counseling banned from owning a gun. That isn't right. I hate to say it, but I'd much rather have the rare shootings, than to have people's rights trampled on by the government. Even so, more often than not the gun legislation isn't going to stop bad people from doing bad things.

Re: Pro-gun article

One thing that could go here, or the media thread, is the use of the term Mass Shooting.

When NBC broke in with a live report of a mass shooting at Fort Hood, my mind had a # of dead of 20 like Sandy Hook, but it was 4. I don't mean to belittle those that died in any way.

Still, when you hear terms like mass graves in the holocaust, or other such terms, surely your mind is thinking in large numbers of dead. And I think the media terms them as mass killings to make it more dramatic. Again to use the car fatalities, nearly every day masses of people are killed in automobiles. Why not that term there.

anyway just ranting

Lotta lip service. They are certainly not in the fore front pushing for legislation.

Like I alway say, take the backyard perspective on things. You good with living next to someone with major mental illness who needs medication constantly who has a cache of weapons in his/her house?

How often is that the case? What if their compulsive gun cleaning is all that keeps them sane?

I'm just pointing out their official stance on the issue. Nothing more.

Not only that, but they somehow managed to find a way to blame the black guy for it all.

Well it's certainly true Fox never blamed Bush, MSNBC, now that's a different story.
