Why California's Gun Ban For People With 'Mental Illness' Is A Bad Idea

California legislators apparently agree. Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB 1968 into law on Friday — gun control legislation that would ban any Californian twice-hospitalized in a given year for mental illness, in suspicion of harm to them self or others, from buying a gun for the rest of his life. Conservatives and libertarians should take note, since this might be a new piecemeal strategy in play, increasingly used by liberals to restrict gun rights under the guise of safety and surface-level logic.
