U.S. House OKs Adding Mental-Health Records to Gun Database 10/17/2002 The U.S. House of Representatives approved the "Our Lady of Peace" bill, which will require states to add mental-health records to the national instant background check system, Newsday reported Oct. 16. The bill is in response to a fatal shooting at the Our Lady of Peace church in Lynbrook, N.Y. In March, Peter Troy, who has a history of mental illness, fatally shot Rev. Lawrence Penzes and parishioner Eileen Tosner. Troy was able to pass a federal background check and buy a semi-automatic gun because his mental-health records had not been forwarded to the national background-check system. Under the $1.1 billion bill, states would receive funding over three years to add their mental-health records to the national system. The bill moves on to the U.S. Senate for consideration. It is expected to pass before this congressional session ends.

Just another way to deny people of their rights...... How many gun owners will ever go to a doctor if they really need help now that this is close to being passed??

I thought medical records were supposed to be private?

Probably has to do with the question on form when purchasing weapon. " Have you ever been Involuntary committed to a mental institution or mentally adjudicated?". That last word sounds kinky. They just don't want the certified wackos buying guns, so that is their claim for building yet another data base. I am sure glad there are no wackos lurking around here......HA
