    Fed Court Rules "Crazy" Gun Ownership Ban Unconstitutional

    An appeals court has overturned the federal law which prevented a man who years ago was temporarily confined to a mental institution from owning a firearm.

    “The government’s interest in keeping firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill is not sufficiently related to depriving the mentally healthy, who had a distant episode of commitment, of their constitutional rights,” wrote Judge Danny Boggs, an appointee of President Ronald Reagan, for the panel.
    As the old ad saying goes, "Sometimes you feel like a nut...sometimes you don't."

    There was a police officer in Fairfield County, Connecticut several years ago who had his personal guns taken away from him because he had a TRO during a divorce proceeding 20 years ago. I don't know if he ever got them back but hopefully this ruling will help.

      One more step in the right direction, provided it's not appealed & a higher court reverses it. Next, non violent felons should not have their gun rights revoked either.

        One thing I have never understood. They push and push for military, law enforcement, firefighters, etc to seek the mental help they need for PTSD, but then they know if they do they'll have their guns taken away, which are needed to bring home the bacon.

          Thank you for that, John.
          They didn't take my guns.
          But once VA tagged me 100% for PTSD, FAA would not renew my pilots medical.
          And still won't.
          But I can own firearms!

            Absolutely wrong. Send a man to defend his country, get him back damaged and deny his right on that basis. WRONG. I hope we get some definitive rulings on this basis.

              obamacare will be the overseer of all this mess.
              Don't worry about the guns, send lawyers and money.

                    You know that and we all know that but there seems to be some discussion about that amongst people that really don't matter to all of us. (politicians for example)
