    Just for the sake of discussion and not to be critically argumentative, but how would you regulate the ability, or non-ablity for mentally deficient or insane person from buying and carrying a gun?...Or would you?

    The constitution doesn't specify that particular scenario and I suspect that the Founding Fathers would hope that common sense would prevail even though they didn't leave much else for speculation although it is still specualted upon. They did a pretty damn good job as far as I'm concerned but mental illness was treated far differently back then.

    Is your contention that EVERYBODY, regardless, should be able to carry?

    My point wasn't so much about determining who should or shouldn't carry or even that "everyone" should be able to, but that among those that can carry, whether your are the President of the United States or a ditch digger, your ability to carry should be the same...and not based on any need.

    But to try and answer your question...which I am not really qualified to do...I would say if you have been adjudicated as unable to handle your own affairs, it may be reasonable to restrict or remove your right to carry. As to how this would be enforced....I have no idea.

    That was a good answer. I haven't been around here enough to figure where everybody is on diferrent subjects and you made this statement and I was just wondering. Now that you have defined the context, I see your point.
