One wonders how much sense the rationale may still makes that possession of
plain-vanilla firearms (as opposed to real weapons, or just - say - swords,
or biochemical laboratories, or PCs), would actually increase citizens'
ability to resist and control their government and its military, especially
in the US.

But I share your view that mental illness is there even more likely than
elsewhere to be defined on the basis of social conformity, given the
puritanical idea that sinners are fundamentally sick.
