Now for people that truly need medication to make them stable, I can't say that I'm against them not having access to guns. My thoughts go to the Auroura shooter who was losing it, and he still could get what he needed legally. This doesn't address Sandy Hook at all.

But it falls apart because I don't trust the government to extend it's reach, and I don't trust that they will do this in a sane manner.
