Texas Republican Congressman Steve Stockman announced Wednesday, January 8, 2014 that he is organizing opposition to an anti-gun control bill which is expected to be soon filed by U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Lindsay Graham, which appears to closely follow an Executive Order issued last Friday by President Barack Obama.
The "Graham-Cornyn Mental Health and Criminal Justice Reform Act" would have the same effect of President Obama's Executive Order we wrote about yesterday, which expands the NICS to include Americans who have either been treated or visited a mental health professional. In its current form, we understand it does not distinguish if the veteran or civilian was deemed a danger to them self or to the public, just would be denied their Second Amendment right for visiting a mental health professional. When the actual bill is filed, we will report again as to its affects, however we do have the outline described by Graham and Cornyn.

So what makes the Graham-Cornyn bill “anti-gun control” again . . . ?
“In its current form, we understand it does not distinguish if the veteran or civilian was deemed a danger to them self or to the public, just would be denied their Second Amendment right for visiting a mental health professional. “
Is that it? Looks very noncommittal.
If Graham and Cornyn are pushing it its got to be bad.
To the uninformed it is. To the clever, it's a blunt killing machine.
I once stayed at a Holiday Inn Express next door to a wannabe headshrinker, does that mean I no longer eligible to get a slingshot?
It appears to denude the returning vets of the right to own any type of firestick if they once visited or dated a headshrinker and said headshrinker for any reason deemed it necessary to put said encounter in her/his diary. Looks like I am being discriminated against because I am nuts. First we had racism now we have nutism. The government needs to send me deed to my 40 acres and a mule, now. Its for the chillruns don’t you know.
