Gotta love. government interference. I will never be able to understand those who advocate for single payer health care, federal government control over state control, etc etc etc....simply because the central government almost always proves its incompetence at every turn.Late to the party here, but HIPAA laws create a disconnect between the law and what happens in the real world. Those in the medical profession are not going to reach out to Law enforcement and proactively put people on the "mentally ill" list and disqualify them from firearm ownership. I had a relative who was on and off suicidal for several years, and spent time at one of the metro-Atlanta mental facilities. We requested that the doctors use whatever system they had to put this relative on "the list" and the answer was basically "Hipaa. No can do."
