Perhaps that’s the frightening part: the nebulous nature of the mythological normal person.

I thought about this a little since last night, Gwenolé Buck and our discussion. Al Pacanowski puts it into perspective.

Perhaps the danger of the availability of guns is precisely the nebulous nature of mental health/unhealth.

Is it implying that anybody can “snap”, given the right circumstances?

Undiagnosed Mental illness or a shooting a missed mortgage payment away?

Perhaps that’s the frightening part: the nebulous nature of the mythological normal person.

If there is no true test of mentally stable (surviving without other people calling you strange or troubled seems to be a key), then guns are too dangerous for anybody to handle without severe and extreme training (such as soldiers who have to have their personalities stripped down and reshaped through extensive exercises).
