I have been reading some of the post here about the countries gun issues and as a Connecticut resident close to Sandy Hook, Newtown who was able to tune in to CNN the day of the shooting and see a good friends wife in tears on TV . I will never forget that day for the rest of my life , I will never forget the name and face of the first innocent victim I saw on TV. Well here in CT , The STATE OF CONNECTICUT DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY's application to purchase a firearm clearly ask's if you are under the influence of a controlled substance , convicted of a felony and if you have a mental illness. Its a simple check the yes or no box.

I belive the State does the background check weeks later you pick up your rifle or shotgun. Purchases of pistol's require a 8 hour course , fingerprinting and a few month's of waiting for the state to process your concealed carry permit.

How thorough is this background check?? I am sure if your a felon the State can look you up , but if your under psychiatric care care who knows about it ?? Your Doctor !

Very simple solution is to have a data base of those people under care and most likely on some type of meads that would give the State a RED FLAG and and hopefully would investigate further.

Does the Doctor / patient confidentiality rule come it into affect ? Oh I bet it does and changing that law would take to much time for the State.

Even if the State did this , It would have not changed what happened that day.

Connecticut does have a Assault Weapons ban in effect , the rifle used in this tragedy is most likely considered a SPORTING RIFLE buy the State of CT.

As a gun owner I do belive there can be some more done to keep firearms out of the wrong hands!!

Oh, it's just a Federal Database. Nobody will ever use it in a malicious way. :-)

I'm thinking we need reporting of all people seeing psychiatrists, and all those taking medicine for mental illness to be reported to the FBI so the information can be included in NICS background checks.
