Congress on Wednesday sent President Donald Trump legislation blocking an Obama-era rule designed to keep guns out of the hands of certain mentally disabled people.
A Mad Guy with a Gun?
OK, so the only defense against a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. At least that’s the way you see it if you are a faithful fan of Western movies or an NRA supporter. But why on earth would anyone want to have a mad guy with a gun show up?
Even the most limited intelligence must realize mentally ill people can be dangerous? Especially with a gun?
So why did Congress vote to arm mentally ill Americans?
According to the Associated Press:
Iowa Senator Charles Grassley, a Republican, argued that “disabled’ people have rights, too . Even the right to bear arms.
Is that the picture you get when you think of some loon on a rampage?
Surely that’s taking political correctness to a bizarre extreme?
Yet according to the AP story, the American Civil Liberties Union and “advocacy groups” for the disabled joined the NRA’s protest against the Obama regulation.
It’s a mad, mad world – sorry mentally disabled.
