So some folks are claiming that the shooting in connecticut was staged. Some folks are claiming that Hurricane Sandy's swath of destruction was created by a conspiracy. Meanwhile, some folks are claiming that any attempt to control citizens' access to guns is the next step to a fascist regime.
Yankee ingenuity triupmhs! Let's combine these problems and form a single solution to both. Follow me below the squiggle.
Anyone who espouses a Truther conspiracy theory should be automatically and categorically excluded from possession of a gun. Period, no recourse.
This sets up a perfect Catch-22 type scenario where anyone who claims a conspiracy theory, such as that the federal government intends to confiscate all guns in private hands, is barred from having a gun. Anyone who denies such theories is allowed to have a gun.
You may say that Truthers will lie about their beliefs in order to preserve their gun rights. However, it is well known that psychotic people cannot lie, that only as they recover and become more enmeshed in reality can they tell an untruth. In mental hospitals the key for a patient to obtain a weekend pass, for instance, is to deny his/her illusions; even if he/she is still having them, the fact of being able to lie about them means sufficient improvement to go home for the weekend.
Then the rest of us can get back to real problems like climate change, rather than being threatened by whackos.
