Mental health care either on the public or private side of the coin is not a priority. After dealing with the system as the care taker of a loved one who had issues, I can tell you this. There are behaviors to avoid that may reduce our chance to ever need such treatment. In the interest of staying on topic, I will not delve into this.
I am leery of any sort of confiscation without strict controls. Like most things, it's a balancing act.
It is good that Arkansas is getting out in front of these issues to avoid the chance of some person not friendly to the second amendment later taking over the Governor's office and trying to rush in feel-good legislation.
As a general rule in AR, if you mess with gun ownership, hunting, fishing or the sound management of streams dedicated to outdoor recreation, your political career will end abruptly.
