Bill Would Bar More People With Mental Illnesses From Buying Guns.

Politico (3/6, Gibson) reports that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), along with Sen. Mark Begich (D-AK) and Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR), “introduced NRA-endorsed legislation Wednesday that would bar more people from buying guns due to mental illness.” The measure “would add people who plead not guilty by reason of insanity to the electronic background check system that determines if someone can purchase a gun. It adds a list of additional disqualifiers.”
