1/ I've decided that I support red flag laws.

Now, hear me out before you reflexively get angry.

I approve of this based on decades of mental health practice--not the current practice, but the DSM-IV definitions of mental health.
2/ There are a wealth of dysfunctions to be used that we really haven't considered. Hystrionic personality disorder. Gender dysphoria. Those folks are not considered well under the DSM-IV. No guns for them. Commit them, too.
3/ Did I say DSM-IV? I meant DSM-II. Goodbye, gays with guns! Back to the asylum with you!
4/ Did I say the DSM? I meant the 1840 Census, in which all black people in many towns were classified as insane. Back to the asylum with you! No guns, no votes!
5/ I bet your reaction if you fit anywhere in those groups was "F THAT."

But the APA is a small group of people. 37,800 members. I'd bet they'd be happy to take on foreign members. A LOT of foreign doctors would hold with every bit of those prior posts.

How would that work out?
6/ So if you're thinking "yeah, those crazy folks sure ought'na get them guns," don't forget you might just be marked out at some point, as times sure do change.

And you don't always JUST lose your guns if this cartel decides you're mentally ill. You may lose all your freedoms.
7/ So I don't support red flag laws, seeing as how I'm not nuts...yet.
