First, my political point of view:
I HATE guns. Won’t be in the same room with them. Recognize their usefulness in certain situations, OK with hunting (though it sickens me when done for fun), have no fantasy that America will ever come close to getting rid of them but I am all for wiping out gun show loop holes and keeping regular folks from having auto-anything or anything military level. I think the NRA is an evil tool of greedy gunsellers and nothing resembling humanity attached anywhere.
And I also think that no one who could reasonably be described as mentally stable or mentally healthy goes out and blows away a bunch of people. To me, that is a crystal clear symptom of mental instability.
So a fellow liberal friend on facebook posts this video:
link to folow, touchy ipad…
That seems kinda lame to me, because to my ears, it sounds like maybe its kinda trying to imply that people who are NOT mentally unstable ALSO go out and mass murder, and they do so (presumably, its all sarcastic) due to the easy availability of guns.
So I say…I don’t get it. My FB friend gets kinda defensive and we are currently at the stage where I am asking him, how the hell do YOU define mental health?
So I am curious about a point of view that mystifies me, if in fact it exists: does anyone sincerely believe that mentally healthy people are also mass murderers? If your answer is yes, please elaborate on your definition of “mentally healthy”, so that I can better comprehend your POV, since I figure it will probably come down to that more than anything… But maybe not. So skool me.
