    Who--exactly--gets to determine who is unfit? A board filled with a bunch of anti-gun mother****ers could deem every U.S. citizen unfit and thereby take way our 2nd Amendment rights.

    Judges do.

    And hopefully they follow the professional and expert views of a Psychologist who thoroughly interviews the person.

    Sorry, but judges don't get to **** over our constitutional rights. Thank God!

    Judges have been given the power to suspend a person's right to own a firearm. This happens ALL the time, in every state.




    Do you feel comfortable with an untreated paranoid-schizophrenic, whom doctors feel is a serious danger to himself and the public, owning a firearm?

    No, the law suspends a person's right to own a firearm, after they have been convicted of a crime. Judges have no authority to remove civil rights.

    No, I don't. But, I'm even more incomfortable with a bunch of anti-gunners bypassing the Constitution and taking away my rights.

    I'll take my chances with the armed nut-job. At least I'll have my personal weapon to defend myself from him, or her.

    judges restrict a person's right to own firearms all the time, whether or not they have been convicted of a crime.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_Con...ibited_persons

    the Gun Control Act of 1968 forbids the sale of guns to anyone who:

    (4) has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been
    committed to any mental institution;


    who does this adjudicating? a Judge.

    who commits a person to a mental institution? a Judge.

    That is seldom used. Do you want a mental evaluation to buy a gun?
