There are some days, that the gun control nuts just make you want to shoot them. I really don’t grasp how they think adding something else (mental health evals), to the long list of requirements for firearms purchases, is going to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, who tend to not legally purchase firearms for a reason. I really don’t get that logic, at all. *shakes head*

Otherwise, life is getting better. The roommate situation is in a better spot, I’m a little more comfortable here and I think it will get better. I acknowledge that I need to take time away from everyone right now, because I’m wanting nothing more than to lash out at everyone, for small things – because the bigger ones are easy to deal with when the fire ants aren’t stinging you constantly. I need space to just be anti-social.

The bruises on my arm are starting to go away, but the movement is hard in the morning, I think I slept on it wrong last night.

For the most part, my weekend was pretty good. Still don’t know where I’m trying to go with all of this, but I feel like I can’t be who I am anymore. I feel like I’m being told I have to hide, from multiple people, and I think that’s what upsets me the most. I can’t really talk about half the things that need to be talked about, because those who need to hear it either don’t want to hear it, or want to continue to live in their delusion of reality and me speaking will shatter that. It’s stupid, I know. On one side, I continue because talking might inhibit the growth of someone close to me. On the other side, I don’t talk, because the more I explain, the more clouded the issue seems to become. I have a couple of level-heads to assist in maintaining what little sanity I have left. But all-in-all, it still makes me want to tell everyone to fuck off and to deal with whatever it is they need to deal with. Taking their issues into account when interacting with them is really getting annoying, especially as it just facilitates their fantasy of reality even further. It would be nice if this was just a small minor thing, like a bug phobia, but unfortunately, it’s not.

    I think it’s a kind of suggested compulsion. Kind of like where you see someone scrubbing the bathroom to deal with the fact that a relative is in the hospital. They can’t control the real problem (criminals having weapons (note not just firearms)), so they Do Something to make themselves feel better. The suggested part comes in that someone gives them a Thing To Do instead of letting them pick it themselves. It won’t help anymore than having a clean bathroom will help cure Gramma’s colon cancer.

    i’ll be notified by the atf when anything official is changed. right now it seems the hoo hah is over checking the box for mental illness stuff.

    and if NICS gains access to additional records to stop the kooks from buying, i’ll be for it.

    BTW in case you didn’t know, i have my FFL now and am selling and buying guns.

    1. For some reason, most of this came out wrong here, and my mail response didn’t post….

      In the case of VA, the issue wasn’t that a mental health eval would have changed anything, it was because there was a loophole that prevented the background check to show he had been institutionalized. They’ve since closed that loophole. Added to that, criminals who are going to commit crimes with guns will just continue what they currently do, and gain them illegally.

      As for the evals themselves, well, on the forum this came up on, most of them probably would deem me unfit to be in possession of a gun, but I would have no problem in passing an eval. Coupled with that, what would the exact litmus test be? And how would the gov’t be able to go about implementing it, without the potential for abuse by the gov’t? That is where my main concern is, as I don’t trust my gov’t that much.
