    How is this hard? If you're on meds for mental illness, you go on a list, and you can't buy a gun.

    The list isn't published. It's maintained by the feds, and the gun dealer is simply told that you are ineligible to purchase a firearm if you attempt to.

    Glad to see you are for gun control.

    Are you also for a database of all guns in America and their current owners?

    If you want people on the autism spectrum not to own guns, meds aren't the answer.

    That will certainly encourage people to seek treatment for mental problems.

    And removing guns from normal people will. Fabulous.
    Most in jail either have a mental illness, anger issue or a substance addiction.

    How many criminals are going to register their guns?

    All of them because BO says so.

    And by all means the way to deal with that is to dress them in pink scrubs, feed them bologna sandwiches and make them work on chain gangs.

    As stated by others, this sudden focus on mental health is a canard, nothing more.

    And yet it still would be more effective than grabbing guns from the law-abiding.

    Which no one intends to do.
