Would this work? Another treat guns like cars argument.

I support all gun bans, and stricter regulations and laws. In addition to banning assault rifles, and high velocity and frangible bullets, large clips, and all drums, I'd like to see registered guns be checked for rate of fire periodically, like all of us have to do when the DMV sends us a notice to have our car's emissions tested. If a gun's rate of fire doesn't pass spec, the gun must be permanently modified or turned in. Guns with smaller clips and lower rates of fire would be a big improvement.

What do y'all think?

Glad to see someone else start this thread.

Many, many, many mentally ill are gainfully employed. Here's where it gets tricky. On the one hand, folks are asking for background checks that include MI. On the other hand, this information is going to be stored in a database. Information in databases are never confidential, and when there's a buck to be made, this information can be sold. My concern is that this information will be sold to HR departments, head hunters, and the like.

Hopefully, we won't let a knee-jerk reaction leave others who deserve protection exposed.
