This is the issue I alluded to yesterday with the New York Times belatedly championing the foolish Mr. Dick Metcalf. The Obama administration is proposing tighter gun controls, again, in a particularly alarming direction.
The Obama administration took steps to tighten gun background checks to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill as the president's broader gun-control proposals remain stalled in Congress.This is an update to a post I made back on July 10th 2013. Barry is now officially going for it.
The White House said yesterday that the Justice and Health and Human Services Departments were proposing changes in regulations to clarify who under U.S. law is prohibited from possessing a firearm for mental health reasons. The proposals would also make it easier for states to submit information about the mentally ill to the background check system.
What do they mean when they say "make it easier to submit information about the mentally ill", exactly? Does it mean something reasonable and legal, like that people who have been adjudicated incompetent in a court of law will be put on a list, and the list will be provided to the FBI NICS system?
Yes, it does seem very Soviet and far fetched doesn't it? The idea that government agencies would raid your medical records in defiance of doctor/patient confidentiality and use that information to confiscate your property, its Qwazy Talk right?
New York Times: not just more full of it than we thought, more full of it than we can even imagine.
But Dick Metcalf is what's important, got it?
