So, I get it. You believe there is ZERO reason to prevent people from owning a gun who are documented as having say...extreme forms of mental illness...or people who commit crimes...even those who prefer using a gun to do commit crimes....
Alrighty then. You said what your opinion is. Groovy.
What I'm worried about happening is for psychologists/psychiatrists to be able to prescribe someone as "mentally ill" during voluntary therapy sessions, and then that person will be unable to have a gun. Do you know what will happen if that is allowed? People will stop going to therapy. People that need therapy won't go because they are afraid they will lose their right to own a weapon. Then the threat of mentally ill people with guns will be even greater, since some people that genuinely need therapy won't go because of the fear of losing their right to own a weapon.
For starters, one can always get a second opinion (and a third - so on and so forth) if they don't agree with their diagnoses... That's all I really have to say, without veering off topic here...
Mentally ill people already own and carry guns. Any time anybody shoots some innocent victim, the NRA diagnoses mental illness.
