  •  the Right doesn't care about the mentally ill (1+ / 0-)

    Don't be fooled.  All the NRA cares about is selling guns, and they will say whatever they have to say to protect gun makers' profits.  No Republican in or out of government will ever vote to expand social services, much less the taxes that pay for them.

    It wouldn't surprise me in the least if conservatives don't actually believe in mental illness at all.  They probably think it's just poor socialization and attention-seeking and that it's caused by a lack of values and discipline.

    Something's wrong when the bad guys are the utopian ones.

    •  I agree... (0+ / 0-)

      But if they are on a rant about Obama not paying attention to the menatlly ill, it's time to make them put up or shut up.

      I believe that this country needs comprehensive mental health reform and even though I do not think it is the major cause of gun violence, being a little opportunistic and forcing the Republcans hand will either get good legislation passed or show them for what they are...disingenuous hypocrites.

      Mentally ill patients should only have their gun rights taken away if they are shown to be violent which in most cases would not be the case.
