But the number of entries in the database highlights the difficulty of America’s complicated balancing act between public safety and the right to bear arms when it comes to people with mental health issues. “That seems extraordinarily high to me,” said Sam Tsemberis, a former director of New York City’s involuntary hospitalization program for homeless and dangerous people, now the chief executive of Pathways to Housing, which provides housing to the mentally ill. “Assumed dangerousness is a far cry from actual dangerousness.”

The risk here is that the list will be a lot like the no fly list and for similar reasons. Thing is there is no confirmed constitutional right to travel by air, but obviously there is to own a firearm at home for sport, hunting and defense. If gun control proponents want to play it like that the worst concerns from gun owners will be shown to be correct.

it’s pretty straightforward-Do this right or it goes away under constitutional and or political challenge. With this gun owners full support.

Several mental health experts said the data obtained by The Times renewed their fears that the reporting requirement would discourage patients from seeking help.

“The threshold for reporting is so low that it essentially advertises that psychiatrists are mandatory reporters for anybody who expresses any kind of dangerousness,” said Dr. Mark J. Russ, director of acute care psychiatry at Zucker Hillside Hospital in Glen Oaks, Queens, which has filed many reports to the state.

Big red flag right there.

In a nation where firearms are both a proof of manhood and a holy icon of the American religion there is no other possible outcome. The culture will not allow it.
