Believe it or not those evil things you are taught that happened in 1800s still go on today in all parts of the world. Slavery, evil dictatorregimes, and tyrannical governments are still happening at this point in time unfortunately. So no I don't, would it be more ignorant to believe we have evolved so far into society in less than a 100 years that these things can't happen again, or is it more ignorant to walk to around as a tin foil right wing nut job as you put it, and believe that the possibility is still there.
Mikey wrote:"A psychological state is considered a mental disorder only if it causes significant distress or disability" - Assuming they're comfortable living with who they want to be or identify as, it's not.
Considering the trans community has a much higher suicide rate that any other group in the United States by far margins, I would say yes it is a mental disorder. One that is unfortunately being normalized under "tolerance and acceptance" by the left here. How can we one in one hand say "we can not allow guns to be sold to the mentally ill" and on the other hand fight to have trans-gendered individuals in the military? How can one have a discussion on what is mental illness when one doesn't want to accept what mental illness is? I am in a agreement sick, mentally ill, and unstable people should not be allowed to own weapons. The question is what measures can be made to limit this, yet still limit the government on infringing on our privacy and freedom? Does the government get to decide what mental illness is? What if they decide that not bowing down to President Trump and his policies is mental illness? You are always under the assumption the government is good, on the other hand, I am always under the assumption that the government is not. Historically speaking, it would be much better to be skeptical of government than to full hardheartedly believe in it.

Yes we do. One reason we should have a privatized militia of citizens. Ever heard of a military Coup? By fuel I mean this: If you disarm the good, non-evil, law abiding citizens and all you have left are illegal guns owned by terribly bad people, what do you think those terribly bad people will do? If they no longer have to worry about that local pharmacy down the street having a pistol behind the counter, no longer have to worry about that rich neighborhood being protected, or if they no longer have to worry about that one citizen in the crowd with a CC permit, what do you think they will do? Seems like fuel for a fire to me.
By taking away the right to bear arms, you essentially are fueling MORE evil, not taking it away.
Let's put it this way. Maybe you can round up all say 300 million+ KNOWN guns in the U.S. and destroy them. Then lets say we can track down every illegal unknown weapon, say a million or so, does it stop now? We can no longer get weapons here right? Wellll.... wwweelll.... that doesn't work with drugs now does it? Maybe if we were a completely independent island like Australia with no neighbors it could work.... but we have a border line military state at our southern border that continually fuels a drug war between our two countries. Put it all together Mikey, IT WON't STOP. The only thing it will stop is GOOD people from protecting themselves.

I've like you Mason and obviously my views are as an Australian and leftist but Your perception of the world outside of America is embarrassing and terribly ignorant. You're a walking talking right wing nutjob of which the rest of the world laughs at.
I mean I've been to Canada so no unfortunately I haven't really unless you count that. I would seriously invite you to look in world crime statistics and look into my "ignorant right wing nut job claim of which the rest of the world laughs at" claim that the UK and Europe in general has a much higher home invasion rate than the U.S. In fact if I remember correctly, the study was conducted in correlation with gun ownership and they found that going off of the rates of other countries if the U.S. was not armed as it is, you could expect the upwards of 50,000 home invasions while the residents are home.
