In my opinion, convicted violent criminals have given up their constitutional right to bear arms. Everyone else who passes a psych test should be allowed to buy guns.
Interesting, so you would like to see everyone who is not a violent criminal should require a psych test?
Convicted Felons ( for violent cases ...)
Anyone who has used a gun in a crime ( should be covered by most above, but just in case)
Those who have been found mentally not stable before, such as the V Tech guy who was not able to stand trial do it it already....
Those who are actively using Anti Depressants should be looked at a bit closer, but they are so rampant for so much stuff these days I would not say that's a out.
also age limits 16 for shotguns/Rifles, 21 for pistols , seems to make sense
I would agree except for people using anti-depressants. THOSE are the people getting treated, not the ones you need to worry about.
As a drastic simplification, I think the inclusion of the right to bear arms was meant to protect the people from an overreaching government.
