Just wow. I knew our culture was devolving, but devolving to the point that someone seriously argues for everyone else to be disarmed — and therefore at the mercy of thugs such as the one she personally experienced — because she cannot trust herself?

Just wow.

And then read the comments. Many, in fact most, apparently agree with her.

Our society is BEYOND sick. Sigh.

As soon as I saw “New York Times”, I knew what sort of piece it would be.

This is exactly why most liberals are afraid of guns. They think they will hurt themselves. Liberalism and mental problems are closely linked. That’s fine, they can choose to not have guns but these same liberals then turn around and try to disarm us as well. Not acceptable.

This article is such a load of crap that I think it’s just propaganda.

I’m glad rich, white liberals get to make these decisions for us. :)

She is arguing that if she had a gun she might lose her battle with depression and kill herself. I heard a similar argument once from an anti-gun college professor ... he said that if he had a gun he would have killed someone by now.

Since liberals have diminished self-control, and as the primary social dynamic of liberalism is projection of their own mental/emotional dynamics onto others, no one should own a gun. They can’t control themselves, therefore you cannot control yourself, therefore you should not own a gun.

Makes sense ... in La La land ...

I have a better chance of surviving if I never have the option of being able to pull the trigger

Our Republic has a better chance of surviving if the writer didn't vote. Maybe we should start calling for the 15th and 19th Amendments to be abolished to save the 2nd Amendment. A whole lot of other problems will be solved as a result.

Madame, you have the right to have a gun, and you have the right to not have a gun.

You do not have the right to take away my gun.

If you insist upon such, then I will have no choice but to view you as my attacker.

But since most people like me are more likely to harm ourselves than to turn into mass-murdering monsters, our leaders should do more to keep us safe from ourselves.

Please take away my Second Amendment right. Do more to help us protect ourselves because what’s most likely to wake me in the early hours isn’t a man’s body slamming at my door but depression, that raven, tapping, rapping, banging for relief.

I have a better chance of surviving if I never have the option of being able to pull the trigger.

Holy crap.

I had to double check to make sure this wasn't from the Onion or some other satire site.

I assume that during this woman's depressive period she also didn't have access to a razor to slit her wrists, or ropes, belts, or power cords to hang herself, or buildings to jump off of, or subway trains to jump in front of. The ONE thing that saved her is that she didn't own a gun.

Oh, and by the way, lady, the government may be able to infringe upon it, but they can't "take away your second amendment right". Your rights are not given to you by the government, they cannot be taken away by the government.

If she had really wanted to off herself, there are plenty of things in her own home she could use: knives, pills, household cleaners. Is she going to ask the government to ban those as well? Just because SHE can't be trusted, doesn't mean most of the rest of the country can't.

How about we have a voluntary registry of people like her who think they can't be trusted with guns? Then, if they have the urge to buy one, the registry can be checked and they can be denied.

Well ain’t that just peachy. If she recognizes that she shouldn’t have a gun, then it is real simple, don’t buy one stupid. But don’t prevent me from having one because you can’t handle it.

This example is like having someone that drinks and drives tell the rest of us that we shouldn’t drive either.

“Please take away tall buildings I can jump from, drugs I can overdose on, subway tracks I can fall on, trains and cars I can jump in front of and sharp objects so I can use to cut myself.”

What did I miss?

I think everybody who feels and thinks as she does should roll up a copy of the New York Times and move north of the Mason-Dixon line. Leave the sane people down here in America. Y’ll have fun up there.

This is totally invented propaganda. Guaranteed!

Either that or the author is even dumber than she is depressed.

[[Please Take Away My Right to a Gun]]

Sure- gladly, and while we’re at it, we’ll also take away your right to free speech too- since you don’t really care abotu rights anyways- we’re certain you won’t mind never being able to give assinine itnerviews again, right?

This woman is free and on the streets? Shouldn’t kkkuomo be ordering an emergency mental health exam for her since she’s CLEARLY indicagted that she might be a danger to herself or others?
