This is what worries me the most about the mental illness designation. It will quickly be widened in scope and will eventually include other "experts" and their opinions. You went to counseling after your mother died when you were 14, too unstable. Court ordered DUI counseling, a menace to society. Suspension from school in 8th grade for fighting, anger issues. All of these individuals would be deemed mentally ill and denied ownership

I haven't read the details of the bill, but one of the big problems with a lot of these bills is that they redefine what is considered a transfer that requires a background check. For instance if you have a gunsmith work on your pistol for two weeks, that becomes a transfer. If you loan your best friend a .22 for 2 weeks so he can teach his daughter how to shoot, that's a transfer. These now either require a background check or become felonies.
