19. Wait a minute!

Do I understand that you think that someone should be denied 2A rights just because he or she has been accused of a crime or who was just suspected of having committed a crime? Or suspected of having terrorist sympathies? Are we completely doing away with the whole concept of 'innocent until proven guilty'?

And anyone who has ever been on meds? So, despite the fact that I have no desire to own (or touch, for that matter) a gun, I wouldn't be able to buy one if I felt the need because I was prescribed Zoloft for a few months to get me over the hump after my Dad died? And what other reasons do you think I should have to give the government access to what medications I take or have ever taken?

Or anyone who's even sought counseling? Really? Would it matter what the diagnosis was? 'Cause I know someone who had to go through a counseling regimen before she was approved for bariatric surgery? Would that be a reason for her to have her constitutional rights abrogated? And if some reasons for counseling would be disqualifiers and others not, are we then suggesting that people have to sign away significant privacy rights?

The suggestions in the OP are really pretty frightening to me on principle.
