creating a civil action for search and seizure of firearms under which a mental health professional shall report a diagnosis of mental illness to the local prosecuting attorney if the patient is an immediate danger to himself or to other persons, and should not possess firearms while he or she has the mental illness (hmmm. . . pending)
Hmmm, indeed.

Might be OK, as long there's a court involved in the "civil action." But I get really hinky about the idea of allowing confiscation based on a diagnosis alone, in the absence of some threatening behavior. A verbal threat of harm to self or another would qualify, but it needs to be clear-cut, IMO.

Other than that... Go, Arkansas!
