Just to make certain: US law currently allows that guy to purchase and own guns?

He probably had guns long before his mainspring sprung.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Probably, unless he's been convicted of a violent crime. State laws matter more than federal when it comes to guns.
In Minnesota, handguns require a purchase permit, which is trivial to get in most cases.

Shotguns and rifles require no permit to purchase.

There is no license required to own a gun, and no requirement to register ownership with the state.

If one happens to be prohibited from owning a gun due to conviction of violent crime or commitment to a mental institution, it's very simple to illegally purchase most guns, and almost impossible to charge someone with the crime until they use the gun in another crime.

I AM he who is called... cat furniture.

Cool, was the 6 months part of your medical training as standard or was it an optional thing?

*I'm just trying to hijack and make this thread something interesting

I did a total of six months as standard part of medical training. You work on a psychiatric ward during the day and then study at night. I got to see a lot of overtly psychotic people then. As a general practitioner you don't see a lot of severe psychosis, but you do of course if you work in accident and emergency which I did on and off for a few years.

As a general physician I see an absolute bucketload of anxiety and depression (which is not the problem here). I try to have a very biochemical and holistic approach to these illnesses. I treat many people for zinc, magnesium, vit D and omega 3 deficiency. I also don't hesitate to use medications when necessary.

As he becomes more unwell, he's also starting to become aggressive. This ain't good for him, or for those who have to deal with him.

I'll hazard a guess that he'll soon disappear from the forum when whoever looks after him realises how unwell he is, or he does something really stupid in real life, and ends up in hospital as a consequence. We won't hear from him for at least a month while he's admitted to hospital. Let's hope, for his sake, that that's what happens, and the sooner the better.

I've wondered if there's not some chemical use going on. Heavy amphetamine use could elicit the mood swings, the manic activity (at least, his posting volume here seems manic), and the break in activity also... a recovery period. I'm no doctor, so maybe I'm talking out my ass, but the cycle seems a little like what my nephew went goes through.

It's very likely there's chemical use happening here. I doubt it's amphetamines though. He's not in the right age group. Amphetamine users are usually too busy looking for the next drug than to sit around on Internet forums. Mark is here to massage his own ego and to give himself some sense of purpose, unlikely characteristics of someone abusing amphetamines. It's far more likely he's abusing marijuana + or - alcohol.

If it's marijuana would it be best he stay on it before going to see a doctor, if he does?

You've already admitted that you don't know that, you were only told that. Do you believe everything you hear? If so, I have a bunch of shares in a nice troll bridge I can part with for a very small sum. In fact, I would take a TransAm in trade.

You would still be getting the short end of that deal.[/QUOTE]

You said you chickened out at 140, or was that a lie as well? I should say you thought it was 140, probably more like 95 with a vivid imagination.

Your Trans-Am would bust a gasket getting to 150, - down hill, - with a tail wind.







It depends.

And I

Observe.

I look.


To see

What you are eating.

Have you no shame?
