Mental Age

On top of all the other strange stuff happening in America since the inauguration came this one on Thursday –

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/house-votes-to-scrap-obama-rule-on-background-checks-for-gun-ownership-a7560421.html

The Republication controlled House have voted to repeal the Obama legislation that was designed to keep guns out of the hands of people who suffer from mental illness.

There are 75,000 of these poor sods who are Social Security recipients who have been diagnosed with mental illnesses. These include extreme anxiety and schizophrenia, and are considered incapable of managing their own affairs.

Republicans and gun-rights activists have argued that the rule stigmatises those with mental health issues and unfairly strips them of their Second Amendment rights.

You seriously have to wonder what the mental age of the Republicans and those who voted for them is, don’t you?

Firearms account for about 1 in 10 American deaths

I mean what could possibly go wrong?
