  •  And you're only mentally ill... (4+ / 0-)

    If the courts have said you're mentally ill.  

    Which means you're probably already not able to own a gun, since you're already in the system.

    So therefore, this bill will do... say it with me now...

    NOTHING!

    Except give the NRA another excuse to say we have enough gun laws.  (Omitting the fact that all the laws are designed NOT to work.)

    I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

    •  Actually, not sure about that (4+ / 0-)

      Question is if they are going to establish some more expansive and rigorous definitions and requirements in their bill. More from the CNN piece:

      This bill would expand the scope of the current federal database – the National Instant Criminal Background Check System – to flag individuals who have used an insanity defense, were ruled by a court to be dangerous, or were committed by a court to mental health treatment.
      There may be some new entries to a system like this as opposed to the status quo. I agree though, to the extent that it doesn't look like much of a change.

      We demanded a plan to reduce gun violence. Now it's time to demand a vote.
