  •  an assessment process takes place - obviously (0+ / 0-)

    and then YES - NO guns for those people if they are considered a danger, or they LIVE with people considered a danger to themselves or others

    •  In a court of law, right? (0+ / 0-)

      Constitutional rights can only be removed through due process in a court of law.  This isn't going to be a mark on a chart from a regular doctor's visit.  Our rights are not so fragile.  The assessment as you put it, must be done in front of a judge.

      I just want everyone to know that keeping guns out of the hands of the "dangerous" mentally ill basically involves dragging every person in America with a mental illness into a court to defend their sanity and their rights.

      It will be unprecidented to tell Ameican citizens that they no longer have Constitutional rights because their child is crazy.  I also have to wonder how long the politically correct crowd will stand for thousands or millions of people with mental illness to essentially be found to be violent criminals in a court of law.

      Have fun with that...
