    Dems are trying to make a BIG change to who is eligible for a WCL. Also trying to apply this same standard to every FFL transfer of a firearm. You need to read this bill. Hopeful it will not get out of committee.

    Gets rid of the current mental health subsection in the licensing statute and replaces it with anyone "diagnosed with a disability." Those so diagnosed must get a mental health professional to sign off.

    (9) "Disability" means:

    (A) Mental or emotional illness;

    (B) Developmental disability; or

    (C) Addictive disease.

    Someone temporarily emotionally distressed over the loss of a loved one?

    Someone physically handicapped requiring the use of a wheelchair?

    Someone who smokes 12 packs a day?
