You Can’t Take Away My Guns (But By All Means, Lock People Up In Psych Wards)

I’ve been making a lot of hay over the fact that all the gun rights advocates suddenly enamored with mental health reform would never in a million Kenyan sun-revolutions fund such reforms. But this is a pretty good point, too:

So you believe that the government can’t stop you from owning an AR-15, but it can somehow FORCE people to undergo psychological evaluation and then force them to accept treatment, including medication? That’s a curious interpretation of state power.

Whatever keeps the subject off guns, I guess.
