That would involve a hippa violation to "find out" about mental illness.


You can't have your cake and eat it too. If you value medical privacy, then one cannot access everyone's medical records to see if they have a history of mental illness.


Do you WANT the federal government having access to all of YOUR medical records?
"Do you WANT the federal government having access to all of YOUR medical records?"


Where have you been" They ALREADY do.

The U.S. Military NEVER called the AR-15 an "assault rifle"!
Homeland Security called them "self defense" weapons when they bought them.

"The speed depends on how fast you pull the trigger."

I've seen the video of the "trick" shooter who can fire a SINGLE action revolver FASTER then a semi-auto pistol.

Then if its such a problem, why don't the "strict" States have border crossing inspections to STOP the influx?

Liberals have to control the Supreme Court for that to happen and they most certainly don't.

The US military never used the AR-15, from what I understand. The AR-15 is a commercialized semi-automatic only version of the Military M-16 which had a full-auto option. Aside from the AR-15 being modular in construction, it is no different than any other semi-auto (one trigger pull=1 bullet) hunting rifle, handgun, gopher plinker, and so on. For decades, the Mini-14 was the farm kid go to, for eliminating gophers from the cattle ranches. Same round, same semi-auto function as the AR-15.

Let me put it to you this way. It's highly unlikely that the Pentagon's arsenal would be used against American civilians. If so the military would be destroying their own friends, family and neighborhoods. There would be absolutely nothing left for them to come back to. Not only that but if the civilian population were destroyed who'd supply the military with supplies? There'd be nobody left to work the factories and farm the fields. All commerce would come to a grinding halt. My guess is that they would disobey orders, and in all probability would use those weapons against those that ordered them to do so.

About the only way they could possibly do it would be to go on house to house searches where they would be met with overwhelming and fierce resistance. As the armed civilian population at around 100 million or so would vastly outnumber government forces. The United States with it's superior military force couldn't beat back the North Vietnamese, short of using nuclear weapons. In which case there would have been a third world war and the end of all life as we know it.

You seem to forget that a large percent of active duty and retired military and law enforcement personal are strong supporters of the 2nd Amendment and Constitutional Law. It wouldn't surprise me if they joined forces with the civilian population that takes up arms in the fight against a tyrannical form of government.

I don't think that you've thought this out very well?
You're all out WRONG! All it takes are enough evil minds in control of government to totally destroy all those points you made. Evil minds would certainly not be against destroying their own friends, family and neighborhoods. World history if full of accounts of how evil minds have killed millions of people. Evil people must simply not be allowed to prevail. The situation isn't about left, right or mental illness. It's about pure evil.

States like NY have ALREADY done it.
Except they didn't. A ban is symbolic. We have a "ban" in CA and I just bought another AR. The only way to do an ACTUAL ban would be to repeal the 2nd.
