If you're not coping with reality, you shouldn't be carrying a gun.
Coping with reality, as defined in what manner? If you are one who believes no planes hit the WTC or Pentagon on 9/11/01, is that sufficiently "not coping" with reality? If you believe the Kardashians are interesting and newsworthy, is that "not coping" with reality? If you believe there's a supreme being that metes out some sort of cosmic justice, is that not coping with reality? If you believe there are virgins in heaven awaiting you if you die a martyr, is that not coping? Other than a few million similar questions that need to be answered, I think your suggestion has merit.
