A court declared incompetent Minnesota man was arrested yesterday after burning his own house down, and was found to be carrying a loaded .380 pistol.
The gentleman in question is convinced that he has been got at by the CIA and Obama, and implanted something in his brain which made him light the fire.
At some point, Bailey told officers that he was the “first half-man/half-robot created by the government.” He said that the CIA and FBI had bugged his house, and blamed “Obama” and the “CIA” for causing the fire that burned down his home.Apparently after the fire fighters arrived he asked them to go away, so he could burn the other half of the house still standing.
This was not the first time Ronald Bailey had brushed with the law, as he had previously been found innocent on grounds of mental illness, which of course disqualifies him from owning a gun.
Arrest records for Bailey in Hennepin County date back to 2004 and include a 2006 charge for fleeing from an officer, for which he was found not guilty by reason of mental illness. The verdict barred him from owning a handgun. Other arrests involved DWI, drugs, firearms and harassment.As I mentioned in a diary last week
It is one of the favorite arguments of the pro gun folks here and elsewhere*that rather than impose gun safety measures, there needs to be more spent on identifying people with mental health issues. But what is the point if those people can simply go to a gun show or "flea market" and buy as many guns and bullets as they want.*edited to protect sensitivities
But here we go again, less than one week later, with a barred mentally ill man buying guns (there was at least one more in his house) despite it being against federal law.

For those who didn't see my diary yesterday, or thought it was total fiction wrought from an overactive imagination, amped up on Jim Beam and White widow, here is the link again to Raw Story's article on Mark "Coonrippy" Brown
