USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- A New York gun restriction bill sponsored by James Sanders Jr. (D) 10thSenate District, is in committee. It’s called Senate Bill S7065 and if passed, “would require a purchaser of any firearm, rifle or shotgun to submit to a mental health evaluation.”

This law would put an additional burden on citizens and firearms retailers by creating more hoops to jump through prior to exercising the 2ndAmendment. Governor Cuomo and state Democrats desperately hope to sign into law, S7065, putting doctors in the position of determining whether or not New York residents would be allowed to own guns.

The most dangerous portion of the Bill reads:

“Section 3 amends section 7.09 of the mental hygiene law by adding a new subdivision (1) to require the commissioner of mental health to establish within the office of mental health an administrative process for the mental health evaluation of any individual prior to such individual's purchase of any firearm, rifle or shotgun. The commissioner shall promulgate regulations which shall include, but not be limited to, provisions relating to mental health professionals approved to perform the evaluation; the process for evaluation; and the development of a standardized form to be used by mental health professionals performing such evaluation to approve or deny an individual for purchase of a firearm, rifle or shotgun.”

Already frustrated with their lack of ability to restrict gun-ownership, the American Medical Association has made it publicly clear that they will do whatever is necessary to prevent people from having guns.

Dr. David Barbe said, “In emergency rooms across the country, the carnage of gun violence has become a too routine experience. It doesn't have to be this way, and we urge lawmakers to act,”

According to CNN Health, “The country's largest physicians group voted to support nearly a dozen policies including:”

  • A call for banning all assault-type weapons, bump stocks and related devices, high-capacity magazines and armor-piercing bullets.
  • Opposing the arming of teachers in schools and keeping schools gun-free zones.
  • Requiring all gun owners to complete a gun safety course and register all firearms.
  • Increasing the federal legal age limit for all firearms and ammunition from 18 to 21.
  • Opposing federal laws that allow “concealed carry” permits to cross state lines.
  • Supporting laws that prohibit individuals who are under domestic violence restraining orders or who are convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence crime or stalking from possessing or purchasing firearms.
  • Requiring that domestic violence restraining orders and gun violence restraining orders be entered into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
  • Allowing family members and partners and law enforcement officials to petition courts for gun removal from individuals considered at high risk for violence.

The question is, how could these Doctors ever be trusted with this level of responsibility knowing how politically biased some of them are on the topic of guns? [They can't be.]

This is exactly what gun-grabbing legislators in New York want; an organization that is already deeply intertwined in the most intimate portion of our lives to carry out the actions of gun-restriction.

Knowing that 90% of criminals surveyed in prison avoid background checks altogether (DOJ study), how likely is it that they will follow Democrat orders and schedule their own mental health evaluation? This law would put an additional burden and risks on citizens and firearms retailers by making them susceptible to any number of system failures and politically biased mental health reviews while making them vulnerable to unnecessary felony violations in the process.

Rather than work on mental health issues in New York, democrat legislators continue to avoid any attempts at fixing the problems that cause human violence and use the issue of mental health as an excuse to attack lawful gun owners and limit their ability to purchase firearms.

It’s become clear that the New York State Legislature is not interested in stopping crime or saving lives. We know this, not by the words they use but by the actions they take. Two laws recently passed in New York State put into question Democrats’ intent to preserve life and keep people safe. The so-called “Reproductive Health Act” for instance, calls abortion a “fundamental right” and allows abortions through the third trimester, including up to the time of birth. The law removes protections for babies who survive an abortion procedure, meaning they could be left to die after birth. The “Bail Reform Law” eliminates cash bail for many offenses including criminally negligent homicide, reckless assault of a child, third-degree assault (hate crime), criminal possession or manufacture of methamphetamine, among many others. This law often puts criminals back on the street the same day they commit the crime. Upon governor Cuomo’s signing of this law, many criminals were automatically released from jail adding a further burden on New York residents and making the State much less safe. Under this new law, a 52-year-old New York man was released from jail after being charged with second-degree manslaughter, only to be arraigned on a murder charge after his release.

At the same time, New York Democrats are setting criminals loose in our communities, the new mental health gun proposal would further ensure New York residents would be left unarmed and helpless when they come face to face with Cuomo’s newly-freed law-breakers. What could possibly go wrong?

The 2ndAmendment is not a privilege. It’s your right.

IMOA, it’s just another gun control scheme that only targets law abiding citizens and will have no effect on criminals. I’m sure the prohibited persons won’t be following “mental hygiene law” requirements before buying or stealing a firearm either.

“….would require a purchaser of any firearm, rifle or shotgun to submit to a mental health evaluation.” Someone should introduce a bill containing…..”….“would require any legislator submitting any bill to submit to a Constitution knowledge test and a mental health evaluation.” A legislator with a bill is far more dangerous to the populace as a whole than a citizen….good or bad….with a gun.

all this will do is cause more problems and eventually some idiot doctor will probably be assaulted for this and although I personally dont want to see this happen, its inevitable.

If enacted this will put such an onerous burden on those with limited income they will opt out of ownership, I guess that’s the plan. Whats’s going to be done about the 250,000 deaths caused by physicians errors every year or will that be ignored?

More like an average of 400,000 (the figure of 409,000 for a recent year seems to come to mind) per year.

Interestingly, the way this is worded dictates that it only applies to long guns.

I think there needs to be an independent group to decide who is mentally fit to hold public office!

Desiring totalitarian power over people is a strong mental disorder in itself, anyone having the symptoms should be locked up out of the rays of the sun forever.

New York has been anti-Constitutional for a long time. Because they are an anti-Constitutional state, we need to convene a panel of gun owners to see if they are actually fit for office, or just plain so radical that they have become the disease itself that ails them. No checks and balances can only lead to absolute power corrupting absolutely.

Who will measure the ability of the deciding body in making these evaluations, basically stated who is evaluating the evaluators?

So the mentally challenged want to give us a mental evaluation before we can exercise the right to keep and bear arms? OK, that makes sense! But wait, we live in a world of make believe where up is down and right is left and stupid is genius and come to think of it…we need to make ANYONE who wants to be a politician take a test to see if they are psychopathic control freaks. That should keep a few out of office. NO WAIT! It should keep the offices EMPTY! See, I have good ideas all the time. That’s… Read more »

THEY ARE LOOKING TO CASH IN ON ALL OF THOSE FEES, THAT IS THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THESE PEOPLE, BUT WHAT DO YOU EXPECT WHEN WE HAVE ELECTED A RACIST, SEXIST, PEDOPHILE, AND CONSUMATE ETHICAL ZOMBIE, AS THE PRESIDENT OF THIS COUNTRY. YOU NOTICE THE PRESIDENT DOES NOT DO ANYTHING TO SUPPORT THE 2ND AMENDMENT, BUT THE CONSERVATIVES HAIL HIM AS THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST, WHEN HIS WORDS, AND ACTIONS PROVE HIM TO BE MORE OF AN ANTI-CHRIST …

They’ll just find some homeless guy, give him a rubber stamp and a bottle of wine, and he’ll ‘certify’ anything they tell him to, at least, he will until he passes out.

When this starts watch what happens. Let’s see how many will be wanting to attend shrink school. These shrinks have lost their minds or have a suicidal tendency. Maybe someone should give them an evaluation to see if they are actually doctors ? They are already becoming very disliked with their so called BS treatments (antidepressants). People are waking up to their partnership with big pharma. Why didn’t you need drugs as a child ? How many kids committed suicide when you were in school ? I don’t remember any. We also didn’t have school shootings. One would think people… Read more »

This is just an excuse to deny citizens their right to bear arms. Nothing more.
