    But I can not afford the copays for regular therapy. $30.00/visit weekly I just can not afford. I see my psychiatrist 4 times a year for meds.
    They want to blame some object and then say it's not the fault of Republicanism over the past 30 yrs.

    As for this:

    Banning me from owning a weapon when i have never committed a crime probably violates my 14th amendment rights of equal protection
    Agreed.  But we do mandate doctors, school teachers, etc into reporting suspected child abuse.  Why can't they be mandated in reporting someone whom is a danger to themselves or others?

    Why can't they be mandated to report the prescriptions they sign off on into the NICS system? How hard or expensive would that really be? Punching in the numbers into a computer? Maybe doctors would actually think twice before drugging people.

    States still can regulate arms. Here in New York you cannot get a permit if someone in your home is a criminal. We're routinely denied that right without due process and forced to pay the price for someone else's actions.

    The line has already been crossed.  What makes medical privacy so special?  

    Maybe when emotions have settled down we can talk about fully funded public mental health services.

    That will help so many and stop so much violence and it will be completely constitutional.
