"Mental Defectives" is a poor choice of language, but I agree with the sentiment here. Being on disability for a mental illness means that it's a serious and incapacitating illness. The way this bill is written, it states that those who are on disability and have another person managing their affairs will be prohibited from purchasing a firearm. Furthermore, it does not prevent them from ever being able to buy a gun - individuals can petition to purchase one. I don't believe that every American should own a gun and I certainly don't think that folks with suicidal and homicidal ideations/attempts should have easy access to firearms.
