I lifted this from War on Guns. Something to think about... http://waronguns.blogspot.com/2007/05/n ... erson.html Thursday, May 03, 2007 A Newly Prohibited Person? A State University of New York at Cobleskill student, suspended after posting a picture of himself posing with a shotgun on the Internet, said he received a five-day academic suspension. The student, Tharindu Meepegama, in a Wednesday phone interview from A.O. Fox Hospital in Oneonta, where he was undergoing an evaluation, said he posed no threat. But he received the suspension "pending a psychological evaluation" after posting the picture April 17 on his profile page on the social-networking Web site Facebook. Hospital? So he's been involuntarily committed for having his picture taken holding a shotgun because the paranoid campus officials and authorities go bonkers even thinking of such things due to recent "threats"--none of which Meepegama apparently had anything to do with? And they think he's nuts? Seeing as how someone in an official capacity ordered this kid into the hospital for a psych evaluation as a condition of lifting his suspension, does that qualify with being "adjudicated"? Will an involuntary commitment cause his name to kick out if that record is included in the database supplying NICS? Or is this one of those things where it's considered "voluntary" as long as you do exactly as ordered? And you folks taking this week's WarOnGuns poll over in the left margin who are supporting NRA's position: would you still choose one of those options if you thought more Meepgama's might be disqualified than truly dangerous people? If so, how many cases like this can we expect because officials suffer from hoplophobia--a self-induced mental affliction even I might say ought to disqualify someone from owning a gun--at least until they're cured. Oh, and one other thing, "sportsmen": You'll notice the kid was posing with a shotgun. One day, some of you who still don't get it might figure out they hate you as much--if not more--than they hate anyone.
