Has anyone made the connection
between the paranoia and rage on the right and what should be the list of people too unstable to own guns?
A lot of them are steeped in paranoid delusions about the government and about Obama. They threaten to act on these delusions if anything happens to trigger their paranoia (like some moderate gun laws).
Surely this is exactly what that list of people who shouldn't own guns is about. The rage and paranoia we have been seeing on TV should constitute enough mental instability, in my opinion, to be on a list that would deny people the right to carry a weapon. I know actually doing this would cause a violent rebellion, but it is something to think about and maybe talk about to bring on some awareness. The pundits keep talking about the right wing and using the word "nuts"? Well, isn't that what the list is about? Isn't paranoia a symptom of psychopathology? And now many of them are threatening violence, again based on a series of delusions.

2. Good point, Nancy. Thankfully, the "start killing people" guy is no longer legally
allowed to carry a gun. Talk about "Delusional"!
"West TN man loses handgun carry permit after making video threats"
Yeager, 42, of Camden, posted videos claiming he would "start killing people" if the Obama administration took executive action to pass gun control measures.h/t maliase http://www.democraticunderground.com/10022175994
Officials said the decision to suspend Yeager's handgun carry permit was based on a "material likelihood of risk of harm to the public" (TCA 39-17-1352).
