NRA may be on to something

About the only concession that the National Rifle Association is willing to make to the overwhelming public call for stronger gun controls is a vague proposal to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill.

I think we should eagerly accept this idea, provided that a desire to own an assault rifle, a semiautomatic pistol, a large magazine, or armor-piercing bullets is considered prima facie evidence of mental illness.
