    Just because you have that right does not allow you to commit acts of violence.

    No right is absolute.

    Citizens can't use force to take guns away, I don't know what kind of magical situation you're imagining. Citizens walking around saying "I'm seizing your guns using my citizen powers"?

    It's always the state using force.
    I am always amazed by your posts my left wing friend and you better believe the people who are for gun control are lefties like you.

    I think it depends.Not all crazy people are threat to the safety of others.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It does, I think, certainly depend on the severity of the symptoms/illness (as we have discussed previously in this thread)....

    Here is something I want everyone to think about, however: If you had (say) a son whom was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or severe depression AND was living with you - Would you (if you had guns in the house) keep your guns locked up, or leave them unlocked and in plain sight all the time? I already know how I would answer that, but this isn't really about me or my opinion.....

    Just something to chew on a little bit - hitting the hay now, but I'll most likely be back here tomorrow (God willing).....

    You kids play nice in the meantime.

    Define mentally ill, what if someone pays someone off in order to get somebody declared ill, and what if they use politics or faith as a reason? I have mild autism, which is NOT a mental illness, but under some laws people want I couldn't own a gun, when I own and shoot regularly.

    Autism (especially mild autism) is not a psychiatric disorder, but rather (from my understanding) a neurological one.... Look, I'm on your side here. I have no further comment about autism or any other neurological disorder at this point - as that, perhaps, belongs in another thread....

    Just be careful. What if you accidently shoot someone?

    Seeing as how you've stated multiple times in this thread that you are pro-gun control, and I am not. I guess you've decided to come out to the world in this thread as a leftist?

    And tell me, under what authority are civilians going to be disarming the "crazies" if the government won't be doing it, as you've stated?

    Discipline and order? That's what you call the government and thugs having all the guns while the average Joe has a baseball bat? What does neutering the average citizen's protective power have anything to do with discipline and order? Will you be conducting mandatory formations and training in order to instill discipline?
