I appreciate your taking the time to read my piece.
I do understand what you mean, but would be worried if we characterise people as good vs bad. My reasoning is two fold:
- These terms are very subjective
- How would we concretely say someone is a bad person when they most likely are not in a rational state of mind, e.g. a person with a mental illness or psychiatric disorder that alters their state of mind causing different behaviours and actions?
It is for those reasons that I would still revert to a fit vs unfit discussion for gun control.
One of the places that we see this type of discussion taking place is if someone, who is indicted for a crime, claims insanity. They are tested to determine their fitness for court and if they are insane. While the gun control criteria may be different, it would follow a similar logic.
What do you think?
