Creeping Danger to your 2A: You must be crazy!

Today the US Government issued a statement that 1 in 5 US residents (I guess that includes illegals too.) are mentally ill. This is a half-point increase over last year due to depression over job losses. Apparently they treat temporary depression over job loss and economic stress as a mental illness instead of a transitory emotional response to a stressor. This means that the government can subjectively declare you mentally ill on no real basis at all. And if they can declare you mentally ill, they can also declare you incompetent, then they can "help you" without your consent. Angry that your government is squandering your tax money? you must be mentally ill. Angry that the TSA can sexually assault you because you have to travel for work and the only way to get there in time is to fly? you must be mentally ill. Depressed because you lost your job because the feds won't issue any drilling permits in the gulf? you must be crazy.

And the feds have declared that if you are mentally ill you may not carry, own, or purchase a weapon.

Remember, they are from the government, and they are here to 'help".
