    Tens of thousands of gun owners, like Mr. Perez, bought their weapons legally but under the law should no longer have them because of subsequent mental health or criminal issues. In Mr. Perez’s case, he had been held involuntarily by the authorities several times for psychiatric evaluation, which in California bars a person from possessing a gun for five years.


    I'm very sure the writers of the 2nd Amendment didn't intend for mentally ill people to bear arms.

    In KY it takes a seperate court order to remove the guns from the posession of those involuntarialy commited because they are a threat to themselves or others.

    I think this should be a combined part of the process of Baker Acting a person.

    When the doctors say they can have them back they can get them back.

    The law already exists to remove Mr. Perez's guns.

    It merely needs to be enforced (sound familiar?)

    Read my post. It varies a lot from state to state.

    but not in KY. I know.
    How about other states?

    I think it should be combined into the Baker act process.
