Are Climate Skeptics Too ‘Mentally Ill’ To Buy Guns Under Obama’s New Rules?

TN Note: When Al Gore stated that ‘Climate change deniers must be ‘punished'”, we had no idea of how that could play out, but it was a bold, arrogant and preposterous statement. If ‘climate change denial’ is accepted as a mental disorder (this has already been suggested by many), then a selective (but massive) gun confiscation program could be ordered against that group.

Today, Pres. Obama announced new executive orders on gun control designed to keep “mentally ill” people from buying guns – but, will they be used to prevent climate skeptics from buying firearms?

Under Obama’s new rules, doctors can now report people deemed “mentally ill” to the FBI so they can be denied gun licenses.

As the official White House fact sheet on the new gun control regulations states (emphasis added):

“Current law prohibits individuals from buying a gun if, because of a mental health issue, they are either a danger to themselves or others or are unable to manage their own affairs.  The Social Security Administration (SSA) has indicated that it will begin the rulemaking process to ensure that appropriate information in its records is reported to NICS.”

If, as Pres. Obama has repeatedly claimed, climate change is a greater threat than terrorism, then aren’t people who deny the climate threat “a danger to themselves or others” and unfit to own guns?

The idea that climate skeptics are mentally ill is nothing new:

Oregon-based professor of “sociology and environmental studies” Kari Norgaard has declared climate skepticism a mental illness that must be “treated.”

Psychology Today published an article listing three warning signs that you are in “climate change denial”:

  1. “You think climate change is bad, but not that bad.
  2. “You don’t have an emotional reaction to climate change.”
  3. “You aren’t getting political.”

Thus, if you don’t think the climate threat is great enough, or you’re not furious about it, or you’re not politically active in the climate fight, then you’ve got mental issues.

The Telegraph’s “Climate ‘denial’ is now a mental disorder” explains how so-call “eco-psychologists” convened at the University of the West of England in Bristol to explore classifying “climate change denial” as a “mental disorder.”

Nature.com published an article warning about high-carbon “addiction” (using central heating, etc.)

And remember when Obama’s EPA Chief Gina McCarthy declared that climate skeptics aren’t “normal” people?

So, you might want to think twice before discussing the nearly two-decade pause in global warming with your doctor the next time you go in for your annual check-up.

Uh Oh. What about all those people on anti-depressants (Prozac, etc)?? I read that up to 30% of Americans are on them. This gun control nonsense is really just way “out there”. We are not to be prohibited from arms whatsoever! Yes, even the nut jobs. The purpose OF arms is not for hunting, or self protection, but as a “standing army”, so to speak. American schools should require reading of “Democracy in America”, but they won’t. How can all of these changes that we are going through happen so EASILY? Where are the pitchforks?? Where are our anti-Communist patriots?… Read more »

I would say that alarmists are the ones that are too emotionally unstable to own guns; they are threatening all kinds of actions against skeptics. In fact one person had the lugnuts loosened on their vehicle.
