2. I agree that there should be the means to confine people involuntarily

through the courts when a loved one or authority figure defines a threat to a person's self or others. It used to be that way, Raygun defunded it. Now for the police or family member to have someone committed they must either be able to self pay or the person must commit a criminal act.

If a person were involuntarily committed with due process, they would be entered into the NICS database as ineligible to buy firearms.

This isn't a monolithic issue. Some things which maybe should be done cannot because of constitutional limitations. Some things can be done to reduce the danger someone who shouldn't access guns is able to..we should consider all options..
