In the worst cases, pairing destructive psychological issues with guns is a recipe for disaster, as we've seen.

Again, I think the policy you support is a really solid idea, though I haven't seen it before. But it doesn't make the person any psychologically healthier, it just restricts his access to guns.

Which is understandable, and sensible.

My OP is specifically attuned to gun rights activists on this forum who believe that every time someone like myself (and, I guess, you) call for gun control, they're missing the real problem -- "the problem isn't guns, it's mental illness, so let's deal with that instead."

Doesn't sound like you're one of those folks, though.
Wait - I've got it. I'll give you the perfectly sane, reasonable, responsible, liberal approved answer.

You know what I want? "Common Sense" mental health reform.

See how easy that is?
