The problem lies in balancing the problems with stigma related to mental health ("if anyone ever finds out about these problems, I will never be able to..."eg. own a firearm) and the growing problems of acts of violence by individuals with a "mental illness" and firearms.

I think an argument can be made that an investigation into mental health should be a condition precedent to owning a firearm just like a background investigation is. It's not necessarily a determinative factor in all cases but it shouldn't be ignored.
