During the 1989 and 1992 International Crime Surveys data on gun ownership in eighteen countries have been collected on which WHO data on suicide and homicide committed with guns and other means are also available. The results. based on the fourteen countries surveyed during the first ICS and on rank correlations. suggested that gun ownership may increase suicides and homicides using firearms, while it may not reduce suicides and homicides with other means. Killias, M. ; van Kesteren, J. ; Rindlisbacher, M. (2001). 43 (4): 429448. The problem with denying the mentally ill their right to bear arms is where do you draw the line on sanity? Certainly, we can all agree that violent psychotics who are institutionalized should not have access to weapons. From there, the line becomes ever fuzzier on the spectrum of insanity to sanity.
Do you take away the right to bear arms from women taking anti-depressants? People suffering bouts of depression? Functional people with Down\’s Syndrome? People who consult a psychiatrist? It\’s been done. What happens when a woman taking anti-depressants is being beaten by an abusive husband who threatens to kill her. Should she be denied a gun? And, there is the fact that most people who are mentally ill are not dangerous to anyone. Prohibiting them from possessing weapons stigmatizes the mentally ill, something the Left claims it opposes. As the old joke goes, just because you are paranoid, doesn\’t mean people aren\’t out to get you. Should mentally ill but functional people be left defenseless against criminals who find them easy prey? The problem with taking away people\’s Constitutional rights on the basis of mental health is that it is not a Boolean measure, either sane or insane. It\’s analog, with varying degrees and conditions of sanity. Compounding this problem is the bad faith of liberals, who have a strategy of chipping away at the Second Amendment to reach their goal of banning guns entirely. They would prohibit the outrageously insane from possessing guns, then expand the definition of insane by degrees, prohibiting ever more people from owning guns until it included all sane people.
There are liberal professors who claim that conservatives must be insane to hold their views. Inevitably, liberals would make this politicized science law. The reason why the general public does not need to go through an extensive process to buy a gun is that it is their constitutional right to bear arms. Your argument that a more elaborate process would deter people from obtaining guns is an attempt to infringe upon the Second Amendment, which is typical of liberal contempt for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. This is why liberals should not run America. Your argument to restrict the sale of weapons makes a false assumption that criminals buy their guns legally. They don\’t. Most criminals buy their guns from their social networks who have stolen them. In other words, they buy them on the street from people they know. Stolen guns are sold at a steep discount and so are more popular with criminals than legal guns bought at full retail price. You\’ll be shocked to learn that criminals selling stolen guns don\’t care if their customers are crazy. As usual with liberal gun control schemes, denying guns to people liberal claim are crazy will wind up prohibiting guns to law-abiding citizens who are largely sane and safe while crazy people will be free to buy as many guns as they please on the black market.
