It's the same thing anti gun people use though which is that guns need to be restricted because of the small number that misuse their rights.
And I am not sure what a headshrinker is exactly. Psychologist? I'm not sure what that link has to do with guns. It's just more about taking threats seriously to me. You don't think that law is a good thing?
I don't think that using mental disorders as a restrictive force on gun ownership is really expanding a role of mental health professionals. There are pretty serious consequences for purposely misdiagnosing people so if people use their influence on others to take away their gun rights without proper evidence they are taking a big risk. As with most everything the people that would misuse it for their personal agenda is way too small to do away entirely with the idea of having some mental disorders be something that restricts a person's gun rights.
