Should the learning disabled, or say mentally ill, be allowed to apply for guns? Congress seems to think so. What's your take?
I have a learning disabled child and am of the strong opinion No Way.

I guess at first I would wonder where the line for "mentally ill" or "learning disabled" is drawn and who gets to make that distinction.

There are a lot of people I know that I wouldn't necessarily want to be able to have a firearm of any sort, but I doubt I could have them classified as either "mentally ill" or "learning disabled".

I think if you are dependent on someone else (a parent, a guardian or even a government human services program) then that person (or entity) should have the final say, but also own the responsibility.

Yes, and they should get the guns for free since most are not able to get work. Afterall, haven't we learned that the more guns that there are in circulation, the less gun violence we see! Rolleyes emoticon
Just because someone hasn't stolen from you, doesn't mean that they are not a thief, and "thieves shall not inherit the kingdom of God"!
