Just a Thought by Hulka January 14, 2013 With all this discussion regarding gun control measures and increased mental health screening, it occurs to me that while most everyone agrees we need better screening to ensure mentally unstable people do not obtain firearms, the question is: Who will decide who is "mentally unstable"? The government? Will the federal government dictate mental health exams prior to purchasing firearms? Do you trust the government to decide who is "sane" when it comes to owning a firearm? Recall DHS issued guidelines stating conservatives, patriots, veterans, NRA members and others that support and defend our founding principles are to be looked at as possible terrorists (a short trip from terrorist to "crazy") and the government could very well classify anyone they don't like as mentally unstable and deny them firearms. So, you can see, my concern is not without merit.
