    I believe this is a great win for the 2nd Amendment. We do not want the gun control left wing radicals to call on all the military men and women when they come back from a war zone and be treated for some mental problems to lose there rights. The other problem is that the government can change the definition of what is a mental health problem so they can limit many the right to own a gun. This is a big win.

    “A federal appeals court in Cincinnati deemed a law unconstitutional that kept a Michigan man who was committed to a mental institution from owning a gun.

    The three-judge panel of the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that a federal ban on gun ownership for those who have been committed to a mental institution violated the Second Amendment rights of 73-year-old Clifford Charles Tyler.”

    And 74 was worried about criminals owning guns

    The judge didn’t make a ruling on all emotionally ill people, only people that have long records of good health that once had a problem.

    “keeping firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill is not sufficiently related to depriving the mentally healthy, who had a distant episode of commitment”

    I agree with 74. People are reading too much into this ruling. It was a sensible ruling but it is narrowly focused.
