Your doctor could put you on no-gun list
This is how WND's article (written by Naomi Laine) starts out. (If you want to read their article, click on the title of this one, it's a direct link)
What they don't tell you is, you doctor can ONLY put you on the list with a court order. That's under the NEW rules. The new rules also, FINALLY give us a way to appeal these decisions. Oh, the old rules had an appeals process too, but they were not funded, so there was no effective way to appeal being put on the "no guns allowed" list. HR2640 fixes that problem.
But GOA would have us all believe it's another way to "curtail" our ability to own guns, as if the NRA would really stand for that. The NRA worked very hard to make sure this would NOT affect lawful gun owners. I think they succeeded rather well.
If you don't believe me, go read the bill yourself. You can find it at http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h110-2640.
I challenge ANYONE to read this law and find where it says, or implicates that any doctor can put you on the "no guns allowed" list on his say so, alone, without adjudication, and/or without being involuntarily committed.
