Tyrant James Sanders Jr. (D) of the 10TH Senate District has sponsored another unconstitutional bill targeting the 2nd Amendment.
SB S7065: Requires a purchaser of any firearm, rifle or shotgun to submit to a mental health evaluation
The American people should be very concerned about this because a recent government study says half of all Americans suffer from mental illness.
According to statistics compiled by The Kim Foundation 57.7 million Americans (26.2 percent) ages 18 and older or about one in four adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder.
But this is only the tip of the iceberg according to the government. A National Institute of Mental Health survey conducted between 2001 and 2003, found that 46 percent of Americans met criteria established by the American Psychiatric Association for having had mental illness. The categories included: anxiety disorders, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), “mood disorders,” “impulse-control disorders,” and a wide range of behavioral problems.
If the government and activists opposed to the Second Amendment have their way nearly half of all Americans will be denied their constitutional right to own a firearm.
For the government, mandatory mental health screening is an ideal mechanism for stripping Americans of their right to own firearms.
