    And how do you determine whether or not someone is mentally ill? That's the most important question.

    Personally, I consider that to be one of those "you know it when you see it" things, but I'm sure medical professionals have specific procedures and diagnosis.

    I think on another thread you made it clear that the only proof you think is required is anyone says the person in mentally ill. Then all firearms of the person seized and the person banned from ever having a firearm again.

    I think you're inventing BS to disparage someone that is not lock-step with you on every single little tiny detail. Scummy move, buddy.

    That would be me.

    There is no mention of mental health in the 2nd amendment. The right to bear arms shall not be infringed upon by mental health experts, or anyone else for that matter.
