This amendment would add an additional $19.5 million to pay states to turn in more names to the federal gun-ban (NICS) list. The vote was on a Mike Thompson (D-CA) and Peter King (R-NY) amendment to H.R. 4660, the Commerce-Justice-Science funding bill. Both Representatives hold an “F” rating with Gun Owners of America.
Already, more than 175,000 law-abiding veterans have lost their Second Amendment rights this way. And, in states like New York, this money will pay to strip Americans of their constitutional rights, merely because they consult a psychiatrist and are prescribed a therapeutic drug.
SO…essentially, we this would discourage people who need mental health help to avoid seeking that treatment, thereby making the people they are afraid of most…even worse! And if you have ever been prescribed an anti-depressant or therapeutic drug on a list of “psychiatric” medications, you will also be reported to the ever so popular, NICS list.
