Here we have case study of what is wrong with our gun laws.
Solution - Charge them with a felony?
And there must be a stupid, irresponsible gun owner somewhere in this.
Ya know - If the gun wasn't hers - charge the whatever idiot gave it to her with a felony.
A woman with a progressively worsening mental illness - and this fool still has a gun around.

If she wanted to use a rope or pills do you charge the rope maker or the pharmacy? Or...just a thought OR, you can send her to be evaluated to see if she is mentally competent by trained professionals that way when she gets out she won't contemplate suicide. Taking the gun doesn't take away the urge to harm herself; she would probably just look for another tool to use.

Ridiculous fail at an analogy...I said nothing of gun manufacturers.
So - No, but if you had a mentally ill/suicidal person staying with you, would you leave them in a room full of pills and 20 feet of rope?
Please, send her your donation for her evaluation...
Taking the gun away wont take away the urge to harm herself.
True, but it will take away one, very effective means.
And - who knows what she might have done...suicide...what else?

It is Not very hard to get an illegal gun. Removing one gun doesn't prevent people with mental illness from obtaining another. Also charging someone with leaving a gun unsecured will never fly, anyone who is intent on destruction won't be deterred so easily. IMO owning a gun is a responsibility and you can't legislate common sense because it becomes a slippery slope. If a person is homicidal or suicidal then this urge didn't just come up over night there were signs that friends and family have always seen but failed to speak about it or get them help. I believe the key to preventing suicides and random acts of violence is intervention and mental health.
