before Obama talks you into agreeing to remove gun rights for the "mentally ill" , there's something you should know.
...betcha didn't know this...
ANY police officer,
and many officials can have you committed to a 3 to 7 day mental evaluation ,against your will, simply by walking up to you and saying "you look agitated"
even if you "pass" your evaluation, you lose your gun rights for months or a couple of years depending on what a judge feels like.
THIS IS HOW IT IS NOW!
currently, even if you have guns registered to your address, the government doesn't ask where they are, they simply have it on the books that you can not be around guns until a certain time.
(aren't the tyrants nice?)
the government passes a law that says "mentally ill can't own guns", then they give the authority hospital workers to declare you "mentally ill "without any kind of trial or conviction.
you want to give them more ability?
don't let your private vision of common sense arm a corrupt government!
