Slipping on the Slope of Bump-Stocks & Mental Illness

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Bump-Stocks and Mental Illness

We’ve yet to see where all this is going, at least at the Federal level, but even Donald J Trump ( DJT ) currently thinks “Bump-Stocks” need to be banned, and NICS checks need to be “tightened,” particularly with regard to “mental illness,” however that illusive term might be defined.

As always, critical details are never talked about!

No legitimate Operator gives a damn about “Bump Stocks!” Their “kiddy-appeal” generated some retail sales, but they are silly, and nothing that has any serious application, nor that would interest me.

Yet, arguments in favor of their banning are completely false.

Bump-Stock-equipped rifles were found at the scene of the Las Vegas, NV shooting of 1 Oct 17, mixed in with at least a dozen other guns of various descriptions.

Up until this event Bump-Stocks had never been involved in any other crime, just this one event and I guess that alone “justifies” a federal ban, at least in our upside-down world.

No one is talking about exactly how Bump-Stocks currently in private hands are going to be rounded-up and apparently confiscated. Ugly details like that are “subject-non-Grata” with our liberal media, and possibly with our President.

However, what concerns me much more is the ill-defined term, “mental illness,” being used to arbitrarily strip Americans of our Second-Amendment rights.

Who decides who is “mentally ill,” or for that matter, exactly what “mental illness” is?

Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot and a host of other tyrants routinely used accusations of “mental illness” as a convenient pretext to disenfranchised political dissidents, eventually imprisoning and murdering them. Health-care “professionals” of the era were recruited to do the paperwork, and most were only too happy to comply.

I only wish I could put that scenario above our current generation of leftists!

So, will all with “MDs” behind their name, now be able to declare any fellow citizen “mentally ill,” and thus permanently disenfranchise him of her?

As I’ve said before, will a person’s entire (heretofore private) health-history now become an “open book” just because he wants to buy a gun?

Will there be any appeal process? Will it take years? Of course, we know the answer to that.

Again, no one in the media, even Fox News, ever asks those inconvenient questions.

Most of us will agree that authors of the Magna Carta, and of our Constitution for that matter (particularly our Bill of Rights), would have been solemnly declared “mentally ill” by standards of the day, and by most “health-care professionals” of the period.

This is a slippery slope!

“When you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him. Give him only one. Better yet, give him none!

When government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it.

Give them contests they win by remembering the words to popular songs, or the names of state capitals, or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data. Chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant.’

Then they'll think they're thinking, and they'll get a sense of motion without moving, and they'll be happy!” ~ Ray Bradbury

    1. Every time the government bombs a country, bans free speech, confiscates guns, wiretaps people, seizes property, tortures, and kills people then you are responsible.

      Silence means consent.

      You would be naive to think that the government won’t get worse or that you will never be a victim of government abuse.

    2. Owning a gun makes us mentally certifiable, therefore we will be banned from public
      More people are killed by cars, ban cars
      Most gun owners own a car, there is an obvious connection here
      Banning gun owners will reduce the road fatalities
      What about banning angry people, that would work

    3. This is for sure… the Marxists have no more plans or any moves left. It’s ‘Communist Revolution or Bust!.’
      I will not let a school of suffering Antifas dictate to me and our nation about our rights. LET THEM COME!!!

      They sure do not want us coming first. Hey Mr. President, NRA and etal, please DO YOUR [email protected]#king Job!!! Stop [email protected]#king caving at every or any thing.

      The GOA is family to me so they get the big high horse, the damn.biggest Clydesdale out there.

      I’m not white but I understand when whites say why should they have to reparations to blacks. The majority of whites did not own slaves, have been and are the poorest in the nation. Whites get shot everyday but you do hear about it. They’ve done this to blacks and Hispanics in the past. It’s pure race division It was wrong then and it’s wrong now. They’re turning gun ownership in to a-race-thing. Bama started that. I like to call ‘Rat Basterd’.!

      1. Sorry since I rushed my words. I missed ” Whites should not have pay reparations to blacks,”, “You don’t hear of the whites that are being shot everyday (by the Police).”

    4. If I remember correctly What party closed most of the Mental health INSTITUTIONS ???? that was UN-AMERICAN . Every one should have the right to be free. Just look what that got us. That is the same party that is now SCREAMING for MORE GUN CONTROL THAT PARTY IS and it starts with a D.

      1. Jimmy [dumba$$ commie] Carter. The traitor that help the Clintons give nukes to NK. He thought they peanuts?! All the commies think Reagan let all the crazies out.

    5. This whole “mental illness/banned from ownership/possession/ability to fly” business should scare the hell out of everyone, not just Libertarians. If you are too dangerous to own a firearm or to fly, why are we allowing you to remain, unfettered and free, in public? Why haven’t you been involuntarily committed for psychiatric treatment? That, in itself, would be a disqualifer for firearms purchase. However, that, then, would require due process, in a court of law, to commit, and friends, relatives, schools etc. are loathe to go that route, instead taking the easy way out, waiting for tragedy to strike and then blaming the object used (unless of course it’s a truck or knife and then it’s just “oh well, too bad”).

      This whole blame the object routine is not only a very old red herring used by those who wish to lie and repeatedly obscure their true agenda it is the cause of continued death in this country and those who fall back on it should be called out for what they are, responsible for the deaths of innocents. Gun Free Zones = Murder Zones

      1. @Vanns, Yep the “Lock him up because he is mentally ill” technique used to be a favorite in the USSR. People who criticized the least little part of any Soviet Government Agency were arrested in the middle of the night, adjudicated mentally incompetent (because the judge was told to), and the critic was never seen again.

    6. It is only a matter of time–not for a very few years but IF/WHEN the AR-15 is made illegal to transfer or sell and a few years later illegal to own, what will you do? Try not to be macho in your thinking-that’s too easy. But, but really consider what you will do as the average citizen with a working brain, maybe family home, etc.. Because when these are gone there will be another gun or guns to then take its place for Democrats and others of that ilk to attack. And by the way, Farnam is correct.

    7. Yes it is a slippery slope,the history of gun control has proven it so.
      If the president decides to run for reelection I wonder who he thinks is going to vote for him,perhaps the ape shit Left,perhaps.

      1. @GMB, Nottinghill and Jim: You are ALL RIGHT ON POINT! What is in the minds of the NRA and the President. Aren’t they supposed to think well before speaking. Especially anti-2A rhetoric????? They will surely lose quite bit of their base due those cave-in… and money too!

        Dumb!
        D u m b!!
        D U M B!!!
