No, that would neither be necessary, nor legal, since most people who have a mental imbalance are in NO danger what so ever of deciding to pick up a rifle or handgun and go and mess up the townspeople for a lark. However, it is VITAL that all those who ARE in a dangerous enough mental state to do such a thing, be monitored, and if necessary removed from society or treated effectively enough that they can be released without risk.
This is not the same thing as what you suggested, which would be draconian and massive overkill.

That's a little radical
Obviously the Democrats ultimate goal is to get the gun manufacturers to shut their doors and go out of business because there is no way they will be able to withstand fine after fine.
It's absurd what this nation is coming to. I thought suing Mcdonalds over a cup of coffee was bad, it's only going to get worse.

Well they made the cigarette companies PAY and everyone applauded the LUNACY...Yes, I can see how they might try something like this and expect it to get results. It took years to take down the tobacco companies, but gun manufacturers probably could be defeated in a similar amount of time.
