Mental Health Background Checks for Firearms

This petition had 153 supporters

There is nothing wrong with responsible, competent Americans owning firearms, whether for hunting, target competition or self defense. However, we do need to prevent those with mental illness or other mental incapacities from gaining access to firearms. This petition demands action by Congress to pass legislation that will require medical and psychiatric professionals to add patients to a mental health registry to be uses in connection with current federal criminal background checks. This legislation will also provide due process rights for persons placed on this list.
