    Default New York Bill Requires Mental Health Evaluation to Buy Firearms

    Legislation pre-filed in New York by State Senator James Sanders (D-10th Senate District) will require anyone wishing to purchase a firearm to first pass a mental health evaluation.

    Senate Bill 7065 has been referred to the New York Senate Consumer Protection Committee where it awaits a hearing.Current New York law requires the use of a licensed firearms dealer and passage of a federal background (NICS) check to transfer any firearm.

    SB 7065 would require the mental health check prior to initiating the background check.

    The implementation of a mental health evaluation for firearm transfers constitutes unprecedented government regulation and overreach. The mental health requirement would even apply to a father giving a treasured firearm to his son or daughter.

    Violators of the new law would face non-violent Class D felony charges and up to 7 years in prison. Some other non-violent Class D felonies in New York include robbery, burglary and vehicular manslaughter. If you are convicted of any felony, you lose your right to own a firearm and your right to vote.

    By their definition, anyone who wants to purchase a firearm is mentally ill.

    They are in a competition with California and NJ to be the most fucked up state.

    If a fair evaluation, no liberals will be armed now.

    What they need is an IQ test for political candidates.
