All of this mainlining of the "mentally ill" is really coming into question--with most mass shootings, and arsons, being caused by people claiming to be "mentally ill".

And now this crazy judge wants her job back!

People are concerned about these "crazies" getting guns. What about driver's licenses, and matches?
