Graham digs in to ban mentally ill from guns, as Dems focus on assault weapons

Graham digs in to ban mentally ill from guns, as Dems focus on assault weapons | 211E Critical Thinking | Scoop.it

"Graham’s proposal would require that people found mentally incompetent be added to the National Instant Criminal Background System – the database for all new gun sales." In our discussion today, I recognize the need for this type of gun control, as the majority of mass murders are committed by individuals who are mentally incompetent, but a rash, across the board classification of individuals is problematic.

While this article does not specifically address any bureaucracy, it discusses how illegal amnesty will impact the bureaucracy. I did not realize that Republicans favor this type of legislation. I thought that Democrats benefited more from amnesty (by gaining more voters), but this article states otherwise. I agree with the article's central theme that amnesty for illegal immigrants should not be granted.
