I was just watching a special on E! where a former postal worker (with a history of mental illness) purchased a gun at a pawn shop...and went on to murder five people at her former job and then killed herself.
I really think there should be stricter gun laws. I am in no way anti-gun, though, so please don't jump my shit or anything.

I would think it would depend on the type of mental illness. Nobody likes to be labelled, but if you are schizoid or something and even if you are taking meds, I don't think you should be eligible.

I think the bigger problem is WHO will determine what mental illnesses will be excluded and to what degree? Will they require an examination and required form from a mental health professional? They won't give it because it would implicate them in any crime committed by a patient.

I though it was illegal for the mentally ill to purchase guns.
