Episode 59: Isaac Richey Guns and Mental Health by Walk the Talk America

    • Society & Culture

Isaac is a former infantryman in the US Army and, due to seeking help at the right time when he needed it, is now no longer allowed to own firearms.

But the story gets nuttier: after discharge from the hospital and completing his care, he was returned to duty and used all kinds of firearms for quite a while longer while working for the Army. Yet now, as a civilian, he has had his career opportunities limited, all because of an activist hospital staffer in New York. 

Born and raised in Oregon and grew up shooting, hiking, fishing and all other sorts of outdoorsy stuff, he is pursing a cybersecurity degree in Texas. He has long-term goals of working in federal cyber security/federal law enforcement, as he believes that would be the best way to use his skills to help people. 

This is his testimony.
