Well of course they have. The big questions is have they yet come up with something that will actually do anything to stop mass shootings? Hint: warm fuzzy feelings do not do anything.

Now they have a plan to give police the right to go into someone's home and physically take them out to be examined by a mental health doctor if a complaint is lodged against them.
Anyone who has a mental problem such as those on social security will not be allowed to own a gun.

As long as due process is involved. And if the complaint is unfounded the complainant and LEOs department coffers split the cost for the victims attorney fees...

It will become the new swatting like Shannon's Shills have proposed.

Any complaints would be considered under the law and anyone drawing a social security check for a mental health issue would not be allowed to own a firearm.

I think Barry did an executive order for that and Trump undid it. Barry stretched it to someone doing finances for any recipient and went way beyond the mental health issue. I doubt very seriously that would make it into the law.

The law right now is pretty clear that if have been adjudicated (due process) as mentally defective you are prohibited. Barry wanted some clerk to be able to deem a person mentally ill.

That's incorrect. They're trying to say that anyone incapable of handling their financial affairs while on SS cannot own a firearm.
Typical egregious overreach.
