Automatic suspension of 2nd Amendment Rights

Connecticut has made it less likely people will seek mental health treatment (emphasis added):

On October 1st the Connecticut State Legislature’s reactionary response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary school went into effect. Public Act No. 13-3 requires all people that voluntarily admit to a hospital for mental health reasons (not solely for drug or alcohol treatment) have their names placed in a database administered by the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services – for the purpose of automatic suspension of Second Amendment rights. This database will link with a database held by the state police that includes all gun permit holders, registered gun owners and anyone who has applied for a gun permit. If there is a “match” between the two databases a letter will go out informing the individual that their Second Amendment rights have been suspended (letter below). Although you will not receive a letter from the state police, if you are not a “match” you will be notified of your name being put in the database and of the suspension of Second Amendment rights sometime after voluntary admission. The law does not require notice be given to people prior to admitting themselves into a hospital.


Second Amendment rights are not granted by the state of Connecticut. It is not within their enumerated power to suspend them without due process. They can no more legally suspend Second Amendment rights than they can First, Third, Fourth, or Fifth Amendment rights. These people should be prosecuted.

  1. Who and what is going to stop these commie bastards.
    They WILL create this database. They WILL cross reference
    it and they WILL use it to disarm people and destroy their
    lives. And nothing will prevent this from happening…..unless
    average ordinary citizens start going Paul Kersey on any and
    all governmental criminals they cross paths with. The abuse
    and enslavement ends only one way….with bloodshed. Either
    the blood of citizens being enslaved or the blood of governmental
    animals being eliminated.

  2. Illinois does the same thing for all voluntary admissions, and has for years. Until the new carry law, you could be automatically re-instated after 5 years if you re-applied and had been a good egg. Now it’s 5 years, then turn over ALL your medical records, medication, doctors notes, EVERYTHING, and get a mental health professional to verify you’re not a danger to self or others. Then you MAY get your rights back, after a panel meets that currently has no members and isn’t scheduled to meet for months, if ever.

  3. Sometimes you think these consequences are unintended, then you really delve into the mindset of these ‘people’ and it makes you wonder about the word ‘unintended’.

  5. I would expect to soon see a sinificant increase in tragic boating accidents in CT, with a strong correlation with citizens who have declared a mental health issue.
