    Is this a smart move? I don't think so. This could be a first in opening up future opportunities to strip gun rights from Americans on a broader scale. I am pro gun all the way and I am not the only veteran who is. There will be a huge backlash if this is approved.

    I doubt the House would approve and it requires both houses to pass a bill.

    Agreed but just the thought of the attempt by them to try it is alarming.

    Virginia Tech massacre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Seung-Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people and wounded 15 others[1] in two separate attacks

    Cho, a senior English major at Virginia Tech, had previously been diagnosed with a severe anxiety disorder. During much of his middle school and high school years, he received therapy and special education support. After graduating from high school, Cho enrolled at Virginia Tech. Because of federal privacy laws, Virginia Tech was unaware of Cho's previous diagnosis or the accommodations he had been granted at school. In 2005, Cho was accused of stalking two female students. After an investigation, a Virginia special justice declared Cho mentally ill and ordered him to attend treatment.[4] Lucinda Roy, a professor and former chairwoman of the English department, had also asked Cho to seek counseling.

    Let's hope cooler heads prevail. Wasn't Chuckie Schmuckie the same person talking about taxing ammunition out of reach of Americans and when that didn't work tried to have bullets inscribed with lasered serial numbers? Hey Sarge have you seen the cost of ammo lately? It's getting so bad that it not worth the cost to blow some people away. They're not worth a plugged nickel anyway.

    2011 Tucson shooting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    On January 8, 2011, U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and eighteen other people were shot during a public meeting held in a supermarket parking lot in Casas Adobes, near Tucson, Arizona

    Loughner had a history of drug possession charges and had been suspended by his college for disruptive behavior. Court filings include notes allegedly handwritten by Loughner indicating he planned to assassinate Giffords.[9] The motive for the shooting remains unclear; Loughner did not cooperate with authorities, invoking his right to remain silent.[6] Loughner was found by a judge to be incompetent to stand trial based on two medical evaluations

    It seems to me to specifically name vets in the bill is not right.

    Those so mentally disturbed that fit the criteria defined in the article , without singeling out any specific group would be the way I would think it be written.

    yeah, attempting to keep the guns away from the insane is a public service.

    attempting to disarm a particular group, especially our vets, is real close to punishment

    Does the bill define what level of mental illness? What type of personality disorders? What their definition of "financially support themselves" is? Does this insanity have to be diagnosed by a private professional or by a military psychiatrist? If a veteran declines to be evaluated would their gun ownership right be taken away?

    Answer those questions before you support it with a knee-jerk reaction.

    The law already provides for removing the right of weapon ownership to those adjudged incompetent. It requires a JUDGE to make the determination after a hearing. Are you suggesting we just allow anyone to declare it?

    PTSD is not insane. MORON.
