There are reasons, like the one given, to have people in custody. I can be in jail, hospital, or some other facility. Once ordered, the person surrenders some of their rights. In my opinion the person, or agency that receives custody, should be held liable for the actions of those they are assigned to supervise.

I wasn't trying to nitpick.

I see the critical distinction between the questions as this - the 2nd one is about what is constitutional, with personal feelings and convictions aside. The 1st one is solely about personal feelings and convictions.

One can acknowledge a constitutional right to something while believing they shouldn't have it, and vice versa.

Good points. Taken.

I hate it when the headline doesn't match the story, and here I did it myself. My goof. Disregard the "gun enthusiasts" part; the question is really directed more to gun rights activists.

No - Good luck with getting records released

No- If they truly have a propensity for irrational violence they should be supervised at ALL times.

Your title question was directed towards "gun enthusiasts", which I am most certainly not. Your more detailed version was directed towards staunch gun-rights advocates. I daresay these two groups have a lot of overlap, but are quite distinct.

And - I think the difference between your two questions is significantly more than slight.

Thanks. Still would like to see more, although a trend seems to be forming.

Folks, it's not some "trick." I'm neither extremely pro-gun or anti-gun, although I generally lean toward keeping them out of the hands of people likely to harm innocents. I just really want to understand the viewpoint of staunch gun rights advocates. Thanks.

I'm going to give this answer, but I'm not entirely happy with doing so:

No. Yes.

I'll hold off on discussion until more votes are in.
