Surprisingly, likely not.

I checked a number of articles that have identified the number as being about 3.5 million quite consistently over the course of several years.

A sad situation, but there's a silver lining in everything.

Since all the data indicates that homeless are almost surely mentally ill, we can immediately put them on the national registry as being disqualified to legally acquire a firearm.

We should really thank and respect the mentally ill homeless for making it so easy to help address the plague of gun violence for making it as easy as it is, or should be, to put them on the "no buy ever list."

It's almost like shooting fish in a barrel.

Plenty of resources in America to help everyone if we didn't have Republicans and Democrats stealing from us all.. One party worst then the other . Need to rise up and get rid of both of them.

A lot of resources go to homelessness.

I live in pretty much the epicenter of homelessness - the geographic San Fernando Valley of the City of Los Angeles.

I encounter homeless people several times a day.

Any homeless person has access to aid, provided both publicly and privately, six days a week and twice on Sunday.

I cannot tell you how many aid centers I pass doing my daily routine.

Homeless people choose to be homeless.

Mental illness plays a huge part in it.

It's a grim reality.

Our local governments have recently passed laws to actually accommodate homeless who choose not to go to shelters to be legally protected to set up encampments in places such as the very sidewalks themselves, along with freeway underpasses and the generally dry river basin drainage structures, and so forth.

I haven't heard it myself, but people I know people who tell me that LAPD officers themselves have told them that there was an unofficial plan to sweep the homeless away from the downtown and out to the Valley, in order to better sell Los Angeles to the International Olympic Committee as the venue for the 2028 Olympics.

Now, more progressive place, such as China and Russia and numerous big hearted forward thinking places like themselves, for example, would deal with the homeless problem in a much more effective and efficient manner.

They would simply sweep those fuckers up, and they'd never be seen nor heard from again.

“Originally, we thought that the problem with homeless services was that they were not funded enough,” he said. “We became more critical of the services once we started looking into them. It seemed the shelters dealt with addiction and mental illness almost exclusively. That’s great if that’s your problem, but alienating if it’s not. One thing nearly all homeless people do want is jobs. They don’t want treatment or even meals. But they will work, and they will push and shove to get a job.

“Overall, we found the shelters followed a medical model of homelessness, where treatment is required to access services. This puts a band-aid on just a few of the individual symptoms associated with homelessness rather than being attentive to the way society contributes to the problem. In that way, social programs sometimes can make the problem worse.”


There a lot of articles from very credible media and institutions that anyone can find on the web.

Or maybe those who choose to be homeless are not the mentally ones at all.

To be frank, most your military is mentally ill but you freely give them guns.

Also which guy you talking about, the Brit with double digit IQ or the hippi with no interest in a gun?
