A petition to eliminate felony charges of ownership of weapons on disability sign now

Eliminate felony charges for owning weapons while on disability. This law is unconstitutional and violates a persons second amendment rights. The right to bear arms. It shouldn't matter if a person on or off disability has or has had ownership over a weapon. It's also not the fault of the individual, that the individual is disabled in the first place.

It is also not fair that a disabled person on disability has almost no protection as the counties do not offer enough protection with county and/or state programs for a disabled person. I know from experience from another individual that the counties and/or state programs are more of a risk than they are a benefit to an individual.

Not only that most people don't know of this law (and I'm not fully informed about this law either) but a felony charge can disqualify you from social security benefits. I'm all for gun control, however I'm also all for anti-discrimination as well. I believe if a person off of disability can own a weapon without charges pressed/filed, then I do believe a person on disability can own a weapon as well without charges pressed/filed. Plus also to add to the fact that just because a person is on disability doesn't always have disability because of mental illness, or developmental handicap, therefore the law is still unfair and unconstitutional.

I do realize what happened back in April 2007, however, just because someone is reconized as Mentally ill, doesn't mean they really are, nor does it mean that they are receiving proper treatment. Comparing that situation to other shootings (which the people were not Reportedly mentally ill) there really is no difference other than alleged mental status. Keep in mind that not all mental illnesses are properly reconized, or taken seriously as well.

People without mental illness pose the same risk with guns and other weapons especially when Provoked and have easy access to guns and other weapons.

So in my opinion that citizen on disability in general should not be charged from owning a weapon. If they are found to be mentally incompetent, the law should have the power to confiscate the weapon, and should not be allowed to charged the individual(s) with a felony. That would disqualify them from benefit.

Keep in mind that a mentally incompetent person is assigned by court a guardian who has the legal discretion to make decisions on behalf of the mentally incompetent individual(s) with or without there consent because they are incompetent to make decisions on there own.

One more thing that I would like to point out is that a knife is deemed a weapon, however I do not know of any law that says that knifes such as chefs knifes are weapons, however since a knife is considered a weapon, then owning a knife (even just to cut food) could seemily get an individual charged.
