When Fidel Castro bullied his way into power in Cuba five decades ago, the west began to see, up close and personal, the manner in which totalitarian governments played fast and loose with the term “mentally ill.” Political dissidents were routinely rounded up, and if they were not murdered in cold blood, they were deemed insane, taken to state-run mental facilities, and given a series of electric shock treatments that rendered them imbeciles for all intents and purposes.

In like manner, the American government under Barack Obama and Democrats who run the U.S. Senate, and their allies in ultra-liberal state governments such California, are using the term “mentally ill” in a haphazard fashion, allowing them to confiscate guns.

And you don’t even have to be a patient. Merely being a family member of such a person is enough for the American Gestapo squads to seize your firearms…

…in the current frenzied mindset of a society that has descended into the depths of near-pathological hysterics over guns, the medical community’s assessment does not go far enough. Apparently all a gun owner has to do is to get a prescription for an anti-depressant, and someone in government is ready to confiscate their guns upon allegations of the person being “mentally ill.”

And woe be unto you if you are unfortunate enough to be married to such a person…
