Non-Christians With "Certain Mental Illness" Should Be ONLY Targets For Gun Control

"It's not God-fearing Christians going out there and committing mass murder, so we really need to find out is it a certain mental illness and we've got to fix it so these things don't happen again," Palazzo said. "But, we're not going to sacrifice the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution just to appease special interest," he said.

1. I know this sounds ridiculous but scientists have just come up with Godfearingometer

It can detect the amount of God Fearingness in any individual and thus allow us to know who to deny guns too.

2. No of course not

The God-fearing Christians ordain their government to commit mass murder. Either way, blood is on their hands.

4. Who asked him to "sacrifice" the 2nd Amendment? Me thinks...

Palazzo has some mental deficiencies of his own.

6. well

Pretty much by definition.. If someone who fancies him/herself a Christian DOESN'T "fear God" then they don't fear any retribution for their actions.

That said.. It is a poor excuse for a human being who's ONLY mitigating influence is fear of retribution.

Those who believe they're "doing God's Work" by killing His handiwork are ill indeed.

And God's being in or out of the picture altogether is entirely beside the point.

7. A great many people disagree. In fact....

"Race and religion are certainly root similarities among Timothy McVeigh, Jared Loughner, Anders Breivik, James Holmes, Wade Michael Page, and Thomas Caffall—all white, all Christian."

11. GOP is a gift who keeps on giving, if it sounds crazy then they must say it.

Maybe in his shallow mind he thinks he is divert attention from the fact the RW's love of weapons of war with high capacities. They are against abortion but want to make sure weapons are available in order to commit mass murders.

12. "instead of restricting gun rights, lawmakers should find ways to keep the mentally ill...

from obtaining firearms"

Hmph - can they start with you? You sound certifiable.
