Gun confiscation begins in NY
If you take anti-anxiety drugs your pistol permit can be revoked. Just as I predicted would happen.
Funny, isn’t it? To the left, parents can’t know about a young teen’s abortion, but they themselves need to have access to all of our medical records in order to make sure they have us completely and utterly controlled and regulated.
So much for emanations and penumbras. So much for concerns that identifying people with serious mental health problems unfairly demonizes them. Because the left’s anti-foundationalism means they aren’t held to any kind of rigorous or repeatable standard. Hypocrisy doesn’t matter. The ends justify the means.
And just so we’re clear on the implications here: if a state can revoke your pistol permit because you are on anxiety medication — which, incidentally, is a treatment, which would seem to suggest that the anxiety has been controlled — it can revoke your permit for any number of “medical” or “mental health” issues, all of which they’ll be privy to as a function of ObamaCare.
— Which, not only does that disincentivize people from getting treatment, but it infringes upon their rights in ways that are unprecedented.
Have arthritis? That makes you less likely to be able to draw your weapon quickly enough not to have it taken from you by a predator. Revoked. Have a heart condition? We wouldn’t want you dropping dead of a heart attack and then having some kid find your gun on you. Revoked. Have acid reflux? That’s liable to make you irritable, and an irritated man or woman with a gun is a potential danger to children and other living things. Revoked. Have less than perfect vision? Well, duh!
Because common sense!
So the question becomes, now that you see their real designs at play, how much more of this are you willing to accept? And what are you going to do about it?
The time is here. It is now. Either you stand up for liberty or you surrender it. That’s the choice before you.
