If you have someone you are helping, even someone with bad math I'd get those weapons transferred.

Me likee!!! There are too many able-bodied young males of any color claiming they have mental issues and cashing government check instead of working,

You don't have mental capacity to work, you don't have mental capacity to own a gun.

While an interesting idea, it includes people who are perfectly cogent, but innumerate, for whatever reason. While not common, it does happen that people are unable to deal with their own finances but are otherwise entirely sane and not otherwise a "mental defective". For example, approximately 6% of the population suffer from some degree of dyscalculia or acalculia, which does not imply low intelligence, just extreme difficulty with numbers and math.

You don't need math to stay away from government paycheck, just a job.

Little by little take away rights, effecting those who can't protest first, until there is push back by the citizens!

You don't want to lose your right to own a gun, don't claim you're mentally uncapable of work.

My first wife had fibromyalgia and was unable to work, and after the degree of medicines that she was on, proved to be unable to manage the checking account; simple mistake of not recording a check or two that went out in the register and the checking account was over drawn.

But not being able to handle a firearm is something else entirely. Removing someone rights for night being financially responsible is just WRONG. Dementia is one thing, being bad with money is quite another.

basically it was Democrats like Obama who would not push better checks by national computer base. They even wrote the check to have local police do them and even a out if they do not after two days. It was purely a delay wanted, The local police response was they would do their job as priority. I don't see this getting any new funding which means its another feel good speech only. Typical response to problem but now its not pass a law but make a speech then move on to next problem.

In some states, you don't pass background check (for newly acquired guns!) if you have any unpaid tickets. And that's kind of fair.

But then again, if you want to get a gun without a check, just go to gun show, or check some billboards at local gun clubs. Or ask a buddy to buy one.
