Neo-com anti-gun Democrats have been trying every trick in the book to strip American citizens of their 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. One of their backdoor tactics is to push laws or regulations that strip anyone from gun ownership if they seek any mental health treatment, even if it’s only for a minor temporary condition.
Such a ruling in Pennsylvania was recently challenged in federal court and US District Court Judge Kim Gibson ruled that under certain conditions, temporary treatment or involuntary commitment is not legal grounds to initiate action under the federal firearms and ammunition disability act nor does it warrant the confiscation of firearms and ammunition.
(Keep and Bear) – In what one attorney calls a “monumental decision,” a US District Court has found that short mental health treatment does not end the rights of gun owners.
An attorney has presented his case to persuade Federal District Court Judge Kim Gibson of the Western District of Pennsylvania to rule that an involuntary commitment under Section 302 of Pennsylvania’s Mental Health and Procedures Act (“MHPA”) is insufficient to trigger a federal firearms and ammunition disability under 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(4).
I’ll add before we get into this that a long mental health treatment doesn’t end them either, as the Fifth Amendment to our Constitution is clear:
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
If judges actually ruled based upon the laws and Constitution, Americans would still have many of the right they have lost due to judges who have used their benches to push their liberal anti-American agendas. I applaud Judge Gibson for the ruling. However, this will not deter anti-gun Democrats who will continue to push more gun control and ways to strip us of our rights until they finally succeed.
