    Comprehensive background checks, round two.

    I knew it, but there may be some rational thought this time around along with lots of heat on the politicos who didn't vote for it the first time. Can ya imagine....mental health checks too?! From where... or what data base? Many states don't report, HIPPA denies access and many AZ jurisdictions don't even report criminal stuff at all; as reported by the AZ Republic newspaper weeks ago, let alone mental stuff. This ain't new legislation, been there, done that and already in the law, as I understand it.

    Even money, this one passes.

    About those mental health checks...in an article from Psychology Today, titled Who's Mentally Ill? by Daniel Golman, 1978....

    ..."Cigarette smoking falls under, "Drug-Use Disorders,"" a controversial category that also includes abuse of alcohol,marijuana, and more potent drugs."

    "The problem of "caffeinism" comes under the heading of "Drug-Induced Organic Mental Disorders," a subsection that describes the specific effects on the brain of certain drugs."

    "Shyness and malingering also seem to be strange classifications for a psychiatric manual."


    And so it goes on and on...it is just a matter of what diagnostic book Drs. use as to what the criteria is and if Drs. want to 'nitpick' in a doctorly way,
    everyone will have a disorder.

    A slippery slope to say the least. IMHO
