Wa-Wa-Wa-WHAT????!!! No Guns for Violent Mental Patients in NY?

Now this really IS funny!

New York’s new Governor David Patterson is urging a gun ban for “violent mental patients.”

Apparently, despite the fact that gun licenses are incredibly difficult to get in the Empire State, violent mental patients can get all the guns they want.

How’d that happen?

Some kind of “Liberal loophole?”

The Bill would allow State officials to release a person’s mental health records to the FBI, provided they were committed to a mental health facility against their will.

We DON’T do that NOW?!

If not, why NOT???

Further, not all mental patients will be adversely impacted by this new law! The Governor noted, “It has to do with why you were committed," pointing out that only those patients with a history of violence or making threats will be precluded from owning a firearm.

Well that’s a relief. For a second there, I thought they were considering banning firearms to anyone who was committed to a mental health facility for ANY reason.

We wouldn’t want that...or would we?

Still, I can’t get over the fact that we apparently need this new legislation.

Who knew, with gun licenses and carrier permits as hard to get as they are, apparently violent former mental patients are having no problem getting them. Well, that’s Liberalism for you.
