23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.
Indy's Observation: Again, is the President proposing a psychological test or simply more that should be clarified in the ACA?
Indy's Observations: Unless the several mentions on mental health means that it will be a requirement to pass a psychological test before obtaining a gun, I don’t see how it will prevent anything from happening.
Indy's Observation: The way this is redacted I can't see how this will prevent mass murders from happening… I can’t even see how this will prevent just a single murder from happening.
Indy's Observation: If by this they mean they are lifting part of the oath doctors take so they can inform authorities about what a patient told them (e.g. a psychiatrist or psychologist) in the privacy of consultation then it is a good measure.
Indy's Observation: This is a good request but it will not prevent mass murders, unless there is a technology out there where a gun will only work by the fingerprint of the gun owner. As far as I know (but I know nothing about guns) there is no such thing in the market.
Indy's Observation: This will not solve anything unless those that lost their guns (or sold them) are severely penalized, which is not mentioned here.
-->Indy's Observation: I truly don’t think that licensed gun dealers don’t know how to run a background check, but it’s a good idea. It would be a better idea to teach everyone gun owner how to do this, since there are guns that are sold among private citizens.
Indy's Observation: Isn’t this done already? Gosh! That should be already mandatory. If it's not, then it is a very good recommendation.
Indy's Observation: This one most likely refers to the privacy act that prohibits Health Care Providers from making public your health records; that will be a good measure but only for those readily identified as unstable.
Indy's Observation: This is odd. I thought all federal agencies already shared this information. Actually, I thought all agencies were required to do this after 911.
