Recent Supreme Court Decision

Supreme Court

 

On straw purchases of weapons is one that I applaud. While I’m no proponent of Gun Control-there’s no way it’ll truly stop gun violence as long as criminals have a black market-I agree with the decision banning straw purchases. What is a straw purchase? That is when someone goes into a store and then buys a weapon. Once they’ve finished the background check, etc etc, they then go outside and immediately give you the weapon to own. That is what the ATF calls a ‘straw purchase’ and I agree with the ban on that.

If straw purchases had been allowed, then it’d allow people to buy guns for convicted felons and others who shouldn’t have them, openly and in plain sight without any repercussions. This would be a unbearable situation that would truly lead to more violence. To this I laud the Supreme Court for making the right decision.

Some Days You Wish You’d Stayed In Bed

And today is one of them. For some reason, and I haven’t had a major depression episode in two years, I’m depressed as hell and can’t tell why. I don’t know if it’s from the stress of starting a new job, paranoia about things that aren’t there or if i’m just down to be down. That’s the thing with things like depression and bi-polar, you just don’t know.

I really do wish I knew what it was today or I’d do something to change it, but I don’t so it’ll be one of those days where I’ll suffer as a slog through it. To be honest, and I’ve said this thousands of times, I wouldn’t wish bi-polar on my worst enemy…no matter who they are. It’s a living hell from which there is no parole, no pardon and no escape. You’re stuck with it for life. 

It sucks.
