We Need Stricter Gun Control

... And this story proves it -
In Alabama, a man with a history of mental illness killed two police officers with a rifle he bought on Christmas Eve.

In suburban New York, a schizophrenic walked into a church during Mass and shot to death a priest and a parishioner.

In Texas, a woman taking anti-psychotic medication used a shotgun to kill herself. [MSNBC]

This appears to have happened because licenced gun dealers DO NOT have to check for mental illness when selling a gun, becuase, apparently, it's illeagal.

Most states have privacy laws barring such information from being shared with law enforcement. Legislation pending in Congress that has bipartisan support seeks to get more of the disqualifying records in the database.
If you're going to allow people to wield guns, you better check to make sure they're not mentally ill before you hand one over to them!

Yea, I agree 100%. I think the mentally ill should not be allowed in Wal-Mart either, because they could buy sharp knives, or plastic forks. I have a mentally ill girlfriend for many years and she was probably smarter and more aware than you are, you intolerent fuck.

Yep. I agree with everything you said. Of course, since Christianity is a form of socially acceptable mental illness...

And let me guess, vjack, scular progressiv(ism?) isn't a mental illness? Hitler, Stalin and Castro are/were secular progressives. First they eliminated religion.

*Gasp* has logic interviened with other of the ACLU's plots to take religion out of America!?
