    Is on mental health and 2nd Amendment rights.

    So how do they propose to keep fire arms out of the hands of those deemed mentally unfit without background checks and registration of firearms?

    By denial of other rights?

    And does that mean all persons now possessing guns or simply all people be screened to weed out the unfit?

    What about my Daughter's future?

      Like Schrodinger's Cat.

      Sometimes, when a hand touches a gun -- both the user and the gun become part of an uncertainty field. In the aftermath, and perfectly normal decent person is standing over the body of a loved one. (When the quantum field clears, the shooter often blows their own brains out. This happens at least once a day in the US.)

      From the outside, the people think they must have had a mental health problem. Yeah, that's it! Moar mental health screening!

      And so on.

      Denial is a drug.
