Oh, before I leave I'd like to insert just one tidbit for thought while everyone is at each others throats here. It might help defuse this situation:

You have a right to your opinion NOW, but I'm not so sure of that in the near future. If our Constitutional laws and Bill of Rights are circumvented, our First Amendment rights will soon follow. I don't care about politics. As a matter of fact, I vote for the who I think would be best for our country. I respect the Office of POTUS, but I don't need to bow down to any individual who holds that office temporarily. I hold fast to the ideals held by our nation's founders. If any individual breaks the law, regardless of how high the level of government, then that individual is guilty of sedition or treason. That is just my opinion. History will play out, and we will see the legacy of our current POTUS. Interference with the right to bear arms violates the Second Amendment. Having doctors asking patients if they have guns, then reporting it to the government breaks the HIPPA laws (privacy laws) that are in place now. I wonder how many people know that there is a $25,000. penalty for any individual, including doctors, to release unauthorized medical information. We have the right to free speech and encouraging a private citizen to report information to the government without a patient's permission interferes with free speech and confidentiality. That will make people reluctant to speak their minds. I believe these things no matter what race, religious affiliation, or political party is in office. Therefore, my comments are not political, instead they are about the freedoms I enjoy as a citizen of the USA. Folks, we are descending down the slippery slope, with caution thrown to the wind.

@Lala This interference with a person seeking medical services is only going to lead to those with mental issues (or a family member with mental issues) NOT seeking medical help for fear of being reported to the government then being denied II Amendment rights or being put on some watch list. Of course somebody with severe mental issues does not need a gun. But what person has not experienced some level of depression during their lifetime?

@ W KY Girl

I think we should all celebrate democracy. It may be the last time we get the chance. Your comments, in my opinion, are on target. It is fine for others to disagree, but I think that it is wrong for you to get bashed for expressing your ideas. First Amendment of the Constitution....right??? It won't be too long to find out who is right or wrong. As a matter of fact, I hope that I am dead wrong.

I was in Nam in 68 &69 and have PTSD so I guess I would be considered mentally ill. I don't want to shoot anyone had enough of that in Nam. I wonder if the next time I go to the doctor he will report me!

@Lala Did you see the mess with the guy from the preppers show losing his gun rights because they decided he was mentally incompetent? No doubt he is very eccentric, but I don't think he is crazy.

Hi Piper. First of all, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your service and may God bless you! I have a good friend who was also in Nam (68-71). He has PTSD too. Me and him were just talking about this a few days ago. I don't know where this county is headed but it doesn't look good.

That is exactly what I mean. So many people have events in their lives that result in depression. No one would advocate for an insane person to purchase a gun. But some people have what is called "situational depression," and get relief with antidepressant medication. These folks are not aggressive and ready to go out and harm someone. But once they are in a data base, they could be denied the right to purchase a gun.

Yeah, I saw the video about the raid which happened only on the word of a single individual, who probably had a grudge against the prepper.

I like the sheriffs who are refusing to confiscate arms in their community. I am proud of them for standing up for what's right. I wonder what the folks in KY will do.

Yep. Everybody that has some sort of mental issue is not crazy and dangerous. Shoot, some of the dang people who are seen as sane and highly intelligent are more dangerous than anybody! This having our doctors spy on us is only going to cause people not to consult their doctor about their problems which could be helped. This is a bad idea!

From what I've read, it was discovered that he was a convicted felon though. So he wasn't supposed to be in the possession of any firearms whatsoever...

(IF we're talking about the same case, of course).

Yeah, sure I feel bad for the guy. But the law is the law as far as felons and gun ownership. Once you're convicted of a felony, you loose certain rights. This is absolutely one he that lost due to a conscientious decision made on his part...

Sometimes stupid mistakes follow you all the way to the grave.. Other mistakes, even further beyond the grave..
