    Default Guns Don't Kill People, the Mentally Ill Do

    Seung-Hui Cho, who committed the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007, had been diagnosed with severe anxiety disorder as a child and placed under treatment.

    But Virginia Tech was prohibited from being told about Cho's mental health problems because of federal privacy laws.

    At college, Cho engaged in behavior even more bizarre than the average college student. He stalked three women and, at one point, went totally silent, refusing to speak even to his roommates. He was involuntarily committed to a mental institution for one night and then unaccountably unleashed on the public, whereupon he proceeded to engage in the deadliest mass shooting by an individual in U.S. history.

    Don't get me going, oops, you just did! The mass murders that have happened lately have been done by people on depressant or psychiatric drugs. HELLO! Should this not be an area of concern instead of punishing law abiding citizens with illegal and unconstitutional gun control laws? Our president is completely out of line!

    Rather face someone mentally ill without a gun than with a gun.

    How many of the posters here are mentally ill? I ask this as a serious question. A lot depends on how you chose to define mental illness and this blanket equation of mental illness with danger is repugnant. The vast majority of those who suffer from mental disorders (even if you take the really severe ones only) are a danger o no one other than themselves.

    I once told a college professor that I really do believe that everyone in the world and I do mean every one is 100% crazy it's just some people hide it better then others.

    Although if this was the case no one would be able to have a gun not even the armed forces, so that name would have to be changed, ha!

    Guns do kill people, especially when they are in the hands of the mentally ill.

    And do articles like the one above help at all?



    How does the US medical system treat the mentally ill? Many sick people cannot work and so would have to rely upon state funded medical support. Does that work?

    Ju there are scum that walk our streets that haven't got a mental illness, so if being normal makes you like them then stay as you are, rather have 10 of you than some of the vermin that walk our streets.

    You know that you have your illness and do you anything to control it.....
    I think the problem is that a lot of people do not realize that they may have a sort kind of disorder.....and don't get treated.

    And if people judge you for who and what you are......then it says more about them than you. .....and they are definitely not worth your time and thoughts...

    And what is normal??
    People come in all sorts and kinds.....and what is normal to one.....may be quite not normal to others.....
    And what I have seen of you.......I sure wish more people were as good and nice as you.
