Mental Health and the 2nd amendment

Spread the love

There is a move in Washington to begin classifying anyone with any kind of behavior issue as someone that should not own or have access to any kind of firearm.

In some cases this may well be a good thing however just like the speed limit people often go farther and faster than they should.

If the speed limit is 55 people go 65 and if the speed limit is 70 people go 80. 

You could apply this to any kind of legal definition of mental health issues requiring the disarming of that person.

We know that there are people out there that are capable of doing terrible things and those people should be monitored and they should not have access to weapons.

However the idea of creating a law that disarms anyone with any kind of mental health issue is something that is a very bad idea.
