Re: I want to keep my guns.

Do you hate mental illness as much as you hate cancer? If not, why not. They are both potentially devastating. The afflicted did not want it. One can kill one slowly, one can kill many quickly. One we spend billions on treating. One we spend billions on confining when the law requires. One is common, the other in it's deadliest form is rare.

Would you be devastated if a friend or family member were diagnosed as incompetent? How about yourself? Scary?

There is a stigma and shame associated with mental illness that is not there with other things. I know I want to get away from a nut as fast as possible. I will hang around and talk to someone about other illnesses for as long as they want to talk.

We blame smokers for their cancers, but non-smokers get cancers too. Drug abusers compromise their mental health, but non-abusers lose their reality, too.

Do you know someone you would not go hunting with, because of their mental state or drug or alcohol abuse?
