Its a conservative few to exclude people from owning guns due to mental health issues....

It depends on the definition of mentally ill.

@TeaPartyAtheist: I was posting with schizophrenia, bipolar, in mind.

More terrifying is that in many states BLIND people can get licenses for handguns.

Does that mean blind, or *legally* blind? I used to be legally blind without glasses. Now my vision is way better and I can shoot just fine.

@Devinni01841, BLIND, as in you can't see a damn thing with or without glasses and you can still own a gun.

I, as a conservative, have barely put any thought into this and still come to the conclusion of no, just like almost all other conservatives have. It's simple logic. If someone is sane, stable, moral, and law-abiding, I don't care if you have a minigun and an Osprey in your garage.
