The medical profession and Mental health specialist will decide who should be allowed gun ownership. In some countrys you are required to have a mental exam every 5 years to renew gun permits.
The authors of the gun control act of 1968 literally ripped the pages out of Hitlers playbook on gun control. If they researched NAZI German laws to create our laws the end game is obvious, total confiscation. Why do a lot of people not trust the NRA? The NRA supported the gun control act of 1968. The NRA only wanted to prevent felons from having guns but they backed the whole package to get the one item.
The fact of the matter is the gun control act of 1968 was not to prevent crime. The GCA of 1968 was written to protect firearms manufacturers not to protect the public, like most gun control laws. It would not surprise me one bit if behind the scenes firearms manufacturers are playing both sides.
