    Second Amendment and people who had been committed to a mental institution 28 years ago
    Under federal law, people who have been involuntarily “committed to a mental institution” — however long ago — are barred from possessing guns. Congress agreed that people with long-past mental problems might now be sane, and thus not especially dangerous, and provided for a means to apply for restoration of gun rights.

Owning any object for the purpose of self-defence, lethal or non-lethal, is a criminal offence. Those trapped within the Lindt cafe were left helpless, as carrying items for self-defence is not allowed under State law. What's worse, the offender possibly knew it.

    2014 Year in Review
    2014 was a highly successful year for NRA in our fight to protect our Second Amendment rights.
