Will this affect me I'm freaking out.
At least I have my current funs ;-;
Should I ask my psychiatrists office how they will report this? Why are the mentally ill becoming second class citizens again?
I hate the government I wanna go to bed.
I don't know how many times I have to explain this, but you still have to actually be declared incompetent and/or forcibly committed by a court to lose your purchasing rights this way.
You'll be fine. It's clear all they're trying to do is make it so all 50 states can submit health records to the FBI.
It's bullshit, but it doesn't hurt you if you can already own a firearm.
That's not what the article states... It sets up a separate path to blacklisting. If a doctor thinks you could possibly be one day dangerous they report you. But is it such an individual thing, or do they report everybody in their care who is unstable? Many psychs are liberal twats and hate guns, they think nobody should have guns especially their patients.
It has been like that for years.
>A person is “adjudicated as a mental defective” if a court, board, commission, or other lawful authority has made a determination that a person, as a result of marked subnormal intelligence, mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease:
>Is a danger to himself or to others
It doesn't hurt you so long as your current mental health care provider doesn't decide that you can't own firearms. Or that any of your past providers don't look through their records and decide that you can't own firearms.
So basically, your Second Amendment rights hang solely on the opinions of people who not only keep records on you that you can't personally access, but aren't really subject to any actual scientific standards.
OP, if you aren't dangerous and you've sought help voluntarily it won't affect you
If they try to stop you, bring it to court, using your years of eventless firearms ownership as a character reference. Or friends. If you have those
>The founding fathers
>The men who built this nation from the ground up
>Were so terminally fucking retarded they could not possibly have conceived that weapons technology would advance at some point in the future and thus write their laws accordingly
This is about the caliber of what you're saying right now. The constitution does not say "muskets", it says "arms."
>Buh buh it's a living document-
then amend it.
>But that's haaaard
Wow, it's almost like you're not a majority or even anywhere close to a majority and as such you and your policy goals can fuck right off
>so deluded that you actually think this
>really thinking your vocal minority of shrill soccermoms is the voice or will of the common man
/r/guns is that way cuck, I think you got lost.
T-he elites want guns!
N-Nra funds lobbying!
Nigger, bill gates, the richest motherfucker on this entire planet, is anti gun. THE RICHEST MAN EVER, IS ANTI GUN.
He could buy so many damn lobbyists it'd make your head spin. But we still have "uncontrolled" "Wild West" gun laws. Maybe the majority is pro gun, or at least neutral. Crazy as it seems, it may be possible.
And come to think of it, what 10%er cares about guns laws?
Yeah, this has always kinda been the case. Though, to be fair, that's something you probably should've seen coming, and do have some legal leverage to nullify if you do; a judge would still have to sign off on something like that, hence why "adjudicated mentally defective" is still the nomenclature on our favorite form.
And this is the best answer for those worried if seeing a shrink for the time their brother died will deny them their right to firearm ownership. A few good character witnesses and years of problem-free firearm ownership would go a long way to show any reasonable judge that you are of sound mind and good character.
This is my interpretation, at least. To be honest, I've always been a little foggy on this, so if anyone has more information on this topic, please respond. A lot of us would like to hear what you have to say.
What if I told you that your right to free speech or freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures was wholly dependant upon the whims of the media, disconnected politicians and a gaggle of reddit-tier mouthbreathing liberals? Like, any or all of these things could be rescinded in total or in part with no nod to legality or even reason. Would that not make you the teensiest bit nervous?
I know I just fed the troll, but it had to be said.
Because of random laws that keep on trying to take our fucking guns is why.
>the government isn't coming for your guns
No, they'll chip away at magazines first, then certain rifles, then handguns (you don't NEEEED a small semi auto) then they'll take the rest.
>inb4 never happened
It's happened a lot of places before, and it may happen again.
A lot of people are in the same boat, or are going to be in the same boat as you.
I had a breakdown when I was 18, and have been involuntarily hospitalized. Since then I have not been able to legally own a gun in my state. I know I do not plan to use a gun to take my own life, but government agencies and paranoid people think otherwise.
I'm still a strong supporter of the 2nd amendment, and occasionally my best friend takes to me to a shooting range. However, my rights have been blown away in a blink of an eye because of my visit to the psych ward 10 years ago.
This is why, even now. I don't agree to any more psychometric testing made be a credible psychiatrist. Because you never know if there is a point in your future were they will be authorized to use the information against you. Who knows; maybe they'll revoke your right to have a job and drive a car....arguments can be made about anything as long as it is for the "safety" of others.
As long as you are not "involuntarily admitted" to a psych ward or agree to any testing you should be in good shape.
And don't fall to the illusion that psychologists know what's best for you. Just play the game, but don't agree to any testing or recorded interviews. My mistake was not realized that I was still in control.
Shit, dude. Would you be able to own a gun if you moved states?
>you would be very disappointed if gun control was left in the hands of the majority
In the past TWO years:
Majority of Americans are now opposed to banning Assault Weapons
Vast Majority of of Americans are opposed to banning handguns since the 1990s (almost 80% at times)
Majority of Americans think the 2nd Amendment is for private citizens to own guns, not just the National Guard or military
Majority now support gun rights against gun control
The NRA has 60 percent support among Americans
(ABC and Gallup poll historical data on guns since the late 1950s to now)
If it was left to the majority, the Assault Weapons Ban wouldn't even be discussed today, you fuckwit.
Fuck all of this bullshit. Getting this tatt done. If you fucking care about RKBA and will never let them take it away, its time to show it.
>Getting a tat
How about becoming a sheriff and arresting federal agents trying to enforce this horseshit in your county?
Why don't amurri/k/ans collectively fill positions of influence or make commitment to the rights they love so much by dedicating their time and effort to defend them?
I'm not doggin' you on the piece, just saying that getting ink put on your skin hardly shows your dedication for furthering the cause.
