NRA Backs Gun Background Check Legislation
By Jerry A. Kane
Senator John Cornyn, R-Texas, the Senate’s No. 2 Republican leader, introduced legislation today that would reward states for sending more information about residents with serious mental problems to the federal background check system for firearms purchasers.
The proposed legislation is being backed by the National Rifle Association. Jennifer Baker, spokeswoman for NRA legislative affairs, said the bill took “meaningful steps toward fixing the system and making our communities safer.”
Cornyn’s bill would increase grants under the government’s main law enforcement program by up to 5 percent for states that send the federal system at least 90 percent of their records on people with serious mental problems.
States providing less data could see their grants from a broad range of justice programs penalized by the same amounts, at the attorney general’s discretion.
So what criteria will the Uni-party use to determine a “serious” mental problem, and how long before it mandates what type of psychiatric exam everyone must get to purchase a gun?
Didn’t Hussein I (peace be upon him) and his minions suggest that fundamentalist Christians and staunch conservatives have serious mental problems? BTW, this latest assault on individual liberty and the 2nd Amendment is headed by a Republican senator and the NRA, and not Charles Schumer and Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963:
- Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
- Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
Some children who exhibit negative, defiant, disobedient and hostile behavior toward adults and authority have been diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder. For a child to receive an ODD diagnosis, the behaviors must occur for at least six months.
Right now it’s only children who are diagnosed with ODD, but it’s not hard to imagine that eventually the parameters of the disorder will expand to include adults.
