Because as a veteran who was "pinged" for being at risk of suffering from PTSD, in all likelihood, I would be precluded from buying a gun.
The problem isn't allowing the mentally ill to shoot or purchase guns, the problem, as I see it, is "who" gets to decide what constitutes mental illness.
The BATFE? The DOJ? Local or state government?
