Obama and the "Mentally Deranged"
Why does Barack Obama keep using the term "mentally deranged" when discussing guns?
Mentally deranged does not equal mentally ill (or mentally challenged). Use of this term unfairly stigmatizes those suffering from mental illness.
Mental illnesses are treatable conditions that can be lived with and beaten and negative portrayals of mental illnesses only make it harder for those who are sick to get the help they need and to be taken seriously.
