I looked over the exact verbiage. *IF* they do as they are stating they will — and that is a BIG IF — then I guess I have no problem with the clarifications.
The words in the actual law, the 1968 GCA, that disqualify a person from buying a gun are “-—adjudicated mentally defective”. The only “clarification “that might be useful is how one gets himself “adjudicated.” Everything else looks to be double talk BS-——and theeerrrrreeeee goes the BS flag——wheeeee.
Agreed. The NRA reacted to Sandy Hook by pointing to better handling mental illness, and that Adam Lanza was apparently very very sick young man. If their political stance is to mean anything we as a society have to get better at stopping these sick monsters.
OTOH I’d prefer it if Congress were doing something like passing a real law instead of letting President Executive Order whip out his own version.
