"convicted felons, those under a domestic violence restraining order or deemed mentally unstable."
Does the State decide who is a murderer? Or is that the public ie a jury? Does the State decide who is crazy? Or is that the public ie a legal inquiry process that is out to protect the public? Does a criminal who held up grocery stores with a gun, get another one when his 5 year sentence is up?
I must say, if someone is mentally off, then we must have a way to investigate are they potentially violent. Most of all are they threatening themselves or others. We must have an investigation into the matter with the eye towards someones mental state. A person who gets mentally worked up and violent, say their schizophrenic or their extreme bi-polar manic depressive has shown dangerous potential for violence, ie picking up knives or weapons of any kind and threatening people with them...
Now I am for the 2nd and everyone's right to self defense as the next Patriot, but if someone shows himself/herself to be acting aggressive, perhaps your right to self defense with a gun must be looked at. Take the girl Jodi Arias, who slashed tires of her ex-boyfriend. Say he proved enough to a judge to get a restraining order against her. That restraining order would hopefully, stop her or at least slow her down in her ability to get a gun.
Again, "convicted felons, those under a domestic violence restraining order or deemed mentally unstable." That sounds good to me.
Now if you are to take the position that the STATE, Jury and Judge system is bad or horrible at doing this, that their process sucks, is arbitrary, is misused, is being abused by police or is an excuse so wide as to drive a mac truck through it that all of our rights are in danger, then I am listening and with you.
