    Jason Sheats told police his wife suffered from depression, Nehls said. She was taking "numerous" prescription medications and seeing a therapist. She had been admitted to a private mental health facility three times in recent years for attempted suicide, Nehls said.

    The Supreme Court just ruled that people convicted on domestic abuse can be denied gun ownership, should those like Sheats who has been hospitalized and was on multiple prescription drugs be denied guns as well?

    Classic Coke bottle shape can result in a vacuum seal. Awkward.

    If youre on any anti depressant or anxiety meds you shouldnt be allowed to buy guns. Seems like common sense to me. Doesnt mean youre a real risk or threat to do something bad if youre on them but we cant afford to take any chances because of whats going on in the world.

    Most likely not. But I don't think it should apply to all treatments, it is going to be hard to draw a line. Depression? Anxiety? Which illnesses lead to ban and which don't?

    That being said, this lady should not have had a gun.

    FYI:
    on ATF Form 4473, the form you must fill out to before purchasing a firearm, Question 11f. asks "have you ever been adjudicated mentally defective... are a danger to yourself or others, or have you been committed to a mental institution?"

    if you answer Yes, no sale. and if you lie, it's a felony.

    If you are admitted to a hospital once 20 years prior for a panic attack?

    I'm playing devil's advocate here.

    Sure as long as it's a water gun, caulk gun, maybe a nail gun depending on how bat shit crazy they are.

    I've never been on this type of holiday, but I would think being admitted into a psychiatric hospital is different than a regular hospital for anxiety. I could be wrong but I've never met an adult who hasn't had some form of anxiety so no, I don't think that should stop someone from owning

    SSRI induced violence again....why are we not looking into this rather than worrying about the guns. Dylan Roof, Aurora Shooter (batman guy), Jared Laughner (gabby gif fords guy).....all of our mass shooters outside of Chicago have been on SSRIs. People its time to look into this. Unfortunately you have to dig to find these connections as Pharma runs the news. Just watch your national news broadcast and the commercials you see.
