...or a mentally ill person. Hospitals and doctors report people determined to be a danger to themselves or others and/or those that consent to mental treatment....

Doesn't that fall short of the standard set in the 5th Amendment ... nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; ... which has been the standard observed by the states and the FedMob until now? A person had to be adjudicated mentally incompetent in a court of law before they were lawfully deprived of their fundamental rights.

Toomey-Manchin was going to sweep that away on the national level.
This appears to be doing it on the state level in CA.

It seems to me that the government, state or FedMob, doesn't give a fat rat's arse about anything in the Constitution anymore.

Aren’t there tens of millions of people in this country who are in treatment for mental illness? And what constitutes “mental illness” under this law? And how is having a restraining order filed on you a crime? This means almost every ex-spouse will now be sure to file a restraining order against their former husband or wife.

Wasn’t “mental illness” how the former Soviet Union justified jailing many of their political prisoners?
