pistol

idaho "doctors" have been forcing monthly injections for hallucination or voices that i dont hear or see for the last 3 years i have been telling them this and they put me on a second medication the entire time the medication has been causing blurred vision. the doctor's name is [name deleted] of region 4 department of health and welfare.

i want to trade my 99 20th century edition sunburst american strat for a pistol of your choice i'm going to kill myself with it though
I would very much hope that no one would respond to an ad like this (which was pretty quickly flagged and removed) but it is a worrisome reminder that there are mentally ill people out there who are likely to be dangerous with a gun -- and who might be prevented from getting one if there were a national background check requirement on gun sales.  But then again, they might just use a knife. 

I have forwarded the full ad to my contacts at Idaho Dept. of Health & Welfare to make sure that the doctor mentioned in the ad was aware that there might be a dangerous lunatic obsessed with her, and to see if there is anything that can be done before this person follows through with the suicide.
