  •  the whole 'it's a mental health issue not a gun (10+ / 0-)

    control issue' thing simply does not address the problem of gun deaths in the inner cities, where the whole sale slaughter of  our nation's kids has been ongoing for decades.  it's just that those are kids of color.  sorry i just have to say that.

    i mean seriously, it's a mental health issue anytime someone points a gun at another human being.  

    what are you going to do?  get the bloods and the crips into therapy?  no, you gotta get the guns.

    and yes, i think we can do it.

      No.  It isn't.  Sane people commit murder.  Sane people threaten violence.  Killing or threatening other human beings for what seems like a good reason is a thing that sane people do, and always has been.  Mental health only comes into it when people either can't stop their emotional impulses from translating into actions, or have reasons that turn out to be delusions.

      Evil isn't a mental health issue.
