Revealing factoid: at the NRA headquarters in Northern Virginia, part of the Second Amendment is chiseled into the building's granite wall. It begins with, "...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." What's deliberately missing is the preceding phrase, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State…." Surprise.
The mentally ill have become the un-regulated militia undermining our security with their Second Amendment "rights."
