US passes law to keep guns from mentally ill
The US Congress, prodded by the deadliest shooting rampage in modern American history, has passed legislation to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. Without objection, the Senate and House of Representatives approved the measure, which would bolster background checks for gun buyers, and sent it to President George W. Bush to sign. The measure would be the first major new US gun-control law since 1994. It was drafted after a gunman with a history of mental illness killed himself and 32 others in April at Virginia Tech University.

It takes now for America to ban the mentally ill from buying guns? How mentally ill could you have appeared previously in order to be able to buy a gun I wonder? How could something so obvious to any rational human being not have been made immediate law in gun loving America? Could their warped obsession with guns and the obscenely sensible sentencing trust-esk NRA be blinding them to the semi-automatic reality of a hyper paranoid aggression on crack in their ‘everyone-has-a-handgun’ country that their open sale of weapons to the public has created?

Consistutional rights in that country I am afraid Bomber, which could still be argued. It is everyones right to bear arms.

This might slightly curve the legal sale of arms in the US, wont touch the illegal sales of arms. Then of course you will have the mums and dads that will purchase these weapons for the children, mental illness or not.

Its a slight change, very limited one though.

Hey you pinko-homo loving-tree hugging fagnuts! Here in the Good Ole USA we got the right to bear arms, the right to arm bears, whatever the hell we wanna do. Yeeha!
