"He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

I don't think society really gives a damn about the one bullet crazed gunmen out there killing themselves. It's the innocent lives that concern people. Have another point to make?
tell that to all the parents, no point to prove, you already proved it.
but here are some useless facts;
4 kids every day die of suicide and half of those do it with a gun and a single bullet, and 90% of them have a mental illness.
how many die of a mad gunman?
school shootings result in homicides are 1% of teen deaths
75% of teen homicides are gang related,
Suicide is one of the 3 leading causes of death for 13- to 19-year-olds in the United States.
An average of 4 American teenagers commit suicide every day.
In states where there are more guns, more people commit suicide.
Studies have shown that the risk of suicide is 4 to 10 times higher in homes with guns than in those without.
If the gun is a handgun or is stored loaded or unlocked, the risk of suicide is even higher.
Does it matter how a person tries to commit suicide? YES!
Suicide attempts with a gun are very likely to be deadly.
Suicide attempts with drugs or methods other than guns have a greater chance of survival.
nearly 60% of adult suicides are committed by a gun, guess how many bullets they need?
In 2010, the last year for which complete numbers are available, the number of gun deaths by suicide in the United States outnumbered homicides 19,392 to 11,078. If you add up all American gun deaths that year, including accidents, 3 out of 5 people who died from gunshot wounds took their own lives.
so the "innocent people" don't even make up 40% of those who die by guns and considering the large amount related to gang violence, drugs, and criminals, that number could easily be adjusted to 25%.
are these people important, you know they are
but they are no more important than those who die by suicide, by the result of mental illness and the lack of resources, stigma, support and understanding from people like yourself.
and by the way,
I am sure this 13 year olds father appreciates you calling his son a crazed gunman and not one of the "innocent people"
thank about it, 2 of these every day, and that does not include adults, and the stats on older adults (65 and over) are staggering and most have mental illness' and depression. but they don't count as innocent people?
but we will keep worrying about those more than 10 bullet magazines and ignore the rest of this,
seems to be a theme latelyJay Shrewsbury

"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution" - John Adams, March 4, 1797 – March 4, 1801

^yeah, because the ATF has no real power."He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help.

BTW...I also want a tank, and any other of the latest military weaponry available....I want all of it!
My rights shall NOT be infringed.
I want to be able to have all these weapons in my house because I'm scared that evil, nazi, African, baby-eating, gay loving, communist is going to turn into a dictator any day now and I want to be ready.
I have the right to any and ALL arms that the military has.
And I will raise hell if I don't get them.Logic and Reason is all you need.

The constitution is clear, am I right?
I have the right to keep and bear arms!
It does not say how many, it does not say what type, it does not say anything!
I want my ARMS!!!
I want that thing that shoots down commercial planes!
I want my mines!
I want all manner of bombs including Weapons of mass destruction!
I want my own Nuclear Football!
Why is the government infringing on my rights to have these arms?
THIS IS TYRANNY!
It's ALL Obama's fault!
When are we going to get our country back?
When am I going to get my bombs, and WMDs?
I demand justice.....I demand my constitutional rights be upheld!
Don't you dare ask me what I want these arms for.....that's none of your business!Logic and Reason is all you need.
