Despite the Second Amendment, should people who have mental health concerns have guns? Esteban Santiago's, a former soldier in the army, had metal issues that were clearly shown when he went to the FBI explaining how the CIA was making him watch ISIS videos to control him. They took his firearm and the newborn he had with him at the time. They then put him in a metal institution but obviously didn't give him the held he needed.
Days before the November election, Donald Trump announced the formation of a coalition of gun enthusiasts to advise him on Second Amendment issues. And he hasn't mentioned them since. Trump was still a candidate when he announced the coalition on Nov, 3, identifying Cox and his son as chairmen and 62 others as co-chairs. The announcement said those leaders would continue to advise Trump and then-governor Mike Pence “as they protect our Supreme Court and our right to keep and bear arms.” Co-chairs believe they are in a good position to advance a pro-gun agenda with the Trump administration and a Republican Congress. Trump, who says he's a gun owner with a concealed carry permit, regularly talks about protecting Second Amendment rights. Already, he has signed a law overturning a rule barring gun ownership for some who have been deemed by mentally impaired.
Betsy DeVos said it should be up to states whether guns are allowed in schools, citing grizzly bear protection as part of her answer. After Murphy pushed DeVos about why she can't say definitively whether they belong, DeVos brought up a story Sen. Mike Enzi told earlier about a school in Wyoming that has fences around it to protect against grizzly bears. As for Trump's campaign pledge to end gun free school zones, DeVos said she would support the President-elect on the issue.
COLUMBIA - Several states, including South Carolina, have drafted and adopted laws that give people wide latitude to shoot an attacker, carry a concealed weapon and buy guns and ammunition. A new law is being made that many gun advocates and members of law enforcement say worries them even more than past gun-rights measures. The proposal, by the National Rifle Association and other gun rights groups, has confounded advocates and law enforcement officials, who say a permit isn't an onerous requirement for someone who wants to carry a weapon. When a gun is bought from a licensed dealer, buyers are subject to a background check, which also allows sellers to see if the buyer has a history of mental illness or violent crime.
