    If a few of those people on the baseball field had been concealed carriers, this could have been stopped much faster.

    your "everyone shooting" rant is foolish and ignorant.

    The massacre at Va. Tech came about because liberals thought the right to privacy of mental patients was more important than the security of citizens. Everyone should know that the ATF form to purchase a firearm includes a question regarding mental competence and the instant name check should include at the very least court ordered psychiatric counseling. In the case of the Va. Tech shooter the instant name check didn't reveal the court ordered psychiatric counseling. Is it the NRA's fault? The Tech shooter was arrested on charges that he was stalking coeds but the University ignored it and so did the local Police. Everyone on campus was afraid of the guy and yet he was able to "legally" purchase firearms. Is it the NRA's fault? The hypocrisy issue comes into play where liberals ignored the incredible incompetence of the Obama administration that shipped over 3,000 illegal weapons to Mexican drug cartels. Nobody on the left seems concerned enough about the Border Patrol officer killed with one of the weapons to demand that Obama's former A.G. testify about the mind boggling negligence.

    Depression is a mental illness, so is narcissicism. Over 500 recognized phobias. I don't think that being treated for ONE of 12,000 over recognized mental illnesses should preclude you from owning a firearm.

    Do you TwitHead???

    So the next question is -- how RELIABLE are the diagnoses anyway? How complete are the cures? Wnen you dive deeper into the issue than parroting Dem Underground or TPM -- there's a real adult discussion to be had. Think I might start an ADULT thread to discuss all of this.

    Topic of this thread is mental competence to possess a firearm. NOT Las Vegas. Or until that's been determined.

    No thanks. I only seriously discuss such topics with rational people. However, if you wish, I can quote you several expert opinions.
