I would never dispute the need to prevent the need for trying to sell a firearm to a n obviously disturbed individual but what scares me here is that
this is going to open up a whole new problem.
Reported for being "mentally ill" diagnosed by a quick conversation with a gun salesman. Reported even.
For one, what happens when someone is "reported" and secondly when has it become a crime to be mentally ill,?
Also, people with some mental illnesses like OCD and bipolar disorder could safely own and use firearms.
Like I said, this complicates things.
Next I could see a registry for this sort of thing. What does it take to get on the registry? A public outburst of discontent at something? How far
will this go?
Also, if you start to look at how they are painting conspiracy theorists as borderline extremists in the media lately it all starts to make sense.
Something foul is afoot.
