    Senator Schumer is always looking for strange and unusual ways to rape the 2nd Amendment:

    Schumer Pushes for Military to Report Applicants' Drug Use to Prevent Gun Purchases - FoxNews.com

    Way to never let a tragedy go to waste, Chuck!

    Asie from the fact that there's no law to this effect - no court anywhere will uphold this as 'due process'.

    That's way over the top. I guess he doesn't think any of the past 3 presidents should be able to own a gun.

    Just another attempted end run around the constitution.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a drug test along with a criminal history and mental health check before someone can purchase a gun.

    It really does seem that the democrats want America to take their eye off the ball and focus on 2nd Amendment rights. Unemployment rose this past month, the economy is still anemic at best. There still is the business of getting a budget that politicians can agree on.
    But, let's focus on the 2nd Amendment.

    They should do the same thing when people purchase computers.

    I am betting that the Republicans are praying that the dems start focusing on Gun Control again, as it is an instant loser for them in 90% of the country.

    All of these things are forms of prior restraint.
    Prior restraint is an infringement.
