You have to go to the county sheriff’s office in Nebraska to get a permit to buy a firearm?
Three cheers for a patriot!
But.....as for locking up the mentally ill I remember back in the late 80s and early 90s “treatment centers” were popping up all over Texas. Turns out school counselors were being paid “spiffs” for every student they got sent to the center. If a doctor or other health professional gets you committed you’ll get out when your insurance runs out. In Texas even if you volunteer to go in you can’t leave for 72 hours. So, we have to be careful.
I speculate simply from experience, watching, reading over many years the Left, a minority in this country has used the tactic to their advantage of procuring voters by using our laws against us. This isn’t new. Many have speculated about this before.
I do believe the Left whom were deeply involved in the shutting down of the mental institutions beginning in the forties, and increasing the pressure on government throughout the fifties, and sixties did so with the intent of absorbing under their umbrella that many more voters.
So much of what they do is specifically to increase the amount of voters under their umbrella. The open borders, the amnesty for illegals, Gay rights, all of this is for the purpose of increasing their voting bloc. The Left doesn’t really give a rats tail about these people other than their votes.
Note that every single issue organization no matter how whack-o is supported by the Democrat Party. Again for the purpose of increasing their voting bloc.
What we have as a ruined society today is the result of the Left’s tenacious drive for power.
