    Already law. If your state is not reporting them then contact your representatives.

    The Democrat Party, its Media serfs, and Social Justice Incorporated are all outraged because we uppity normals are again presuming to rule ourselves, and their agony is delightful.

    Mental health professionals should be able to add them. They have the right to determine who is mentally ill and who is not

    Demonstrate the actual proof of your claim.

    Perhaps because the effort to prohibit legal firearms ownership amongst those who receive social security benefits is devoid of anything resembling due process, and did not go through congress?
    If one cannot have an argument without resorting to hyperbole, name calling, and emotional rhetoric, then they have lost the argument from their first post.

It could probably be income tax based. Anyone mentally ill and under a certain income level should be able to carry a subsidized ammo discount card. If they are far enough under the poverty line, it should be free.

    Perhaps eliminating the "Mentally Ill" aspect and focusing instead on the SS part is a completely disingenuous dodge of the actual thread topic made by an individual with no logical or competent position to express.

    Since the laws already exist that brings the SS issue to the front since that is the vehicle the previous administration used to automatically ban people from owning guns.

    I have no problem with the mentally ill being denied owning guns, but the process to deny that right should involve due process, just like every other way people can be denied the right to own guns. You want to take away rights from people based on a doctor's word, without having a hearing? Would you put people in mental hospitals that way?
    Whether they wrote the laws down on a particular piece of paper or not isn’t the point, you simply can’t drag one right from the past when conditions were far different than those that exist today.
    At the least armed militias made some sense then considering that the continental army was disbanded in 1783 but the borders of the colonies were still under threat.
    In short, the 2nd amendment was made to engage with the events for that time and to argue that they are as true today is ludicrous. Comparing the weapons then with those that are available today is akin to comparing a horse and cart to a F1 Grand Pre car.

    If you are prepared to live with the consequences of living with more than three deaths each hour and every hour as a price of arming civilians including the mentally impaired, then you’re the ones that have to live with that decision.

    Actually they used social security as the means of tracking Mentally Ill individuals in order to prevent them from obtaining guns. You are attempting to do the same thing he did because you cannot defend it either.

    How's this:

    Do you think its a good idea to give a gun to a crazy person?
