    Depends who has the power to certify someone as having mental disabilities. For example fifty or so years ago it was considered that homosexuality as a mental disturbance.

    They could make mentally ill people get ID cards to buy guns but that's like having to show a picture ID to vote. If your ID has a picture on it that's racist by definition.

    Congress should have nothing to do with it. If New York wants to enact a law banning all firearms so be it. Same goes for banning the mentally ill.

    I would say however that it's the enforcement of laws like these which is the issue: who determines if you are mentally ill? What happens in a private sale? Etc.

    So you're ok with buying across state lines to get around laws.

    Good point. So you're saying we need more and better gun laws to cover these things. I agree. I think the determination of mental illness is covered though.

    How is the gun salesman determining the mental stability? Are you saying gun salesman get to breach your rights and violate HIPPA and receive your health status?
