An interesting conceptualization of redemption and reformation underlies this
proposal. If generalized, it would have a major impact on the treatment of
people who have committed crimes and the assumption of progressive change of at
last a significant number of felons in our criminal justice system. To what
extent are people who aren't deemed mentally ill but are competent able to
change their values and beliefs and become reformed citizens in society that
would warrant access to the freedoms that the rest of society has a right to?
Jobs, relationships, even perhaps guns?
Curing mental illness? Is that the same process they use to cure the gay?
I'd like to see how that works out.
Guns, guns, guns!I didn't realize there was such a strong lobby
by the mentally ill special interest groups in this State to own a gun?
I'm curious how many mentally ill people have contact their Senator or Rep
to get this bill pushed through?To this point in my life I have no
mental illness that would prevent me from owning a gun. As a part of that
'lobby/special interest group'.... I'm not sure if this is a good
idea?How much time have our elected officials spend on this one?
