Adrienne? 3 3 Joy and Rob - Legally, anyone who is on the Mentally Defective Database called "ME-COM"...or has a court- ordered commitment to a mental institution CAN'T buy a gun.

If they're acting erratically, fidgety, or have a strong sense of urgency that they need the gun right away - those are all red flags you shouldn't ignore....and a sign you should turn that person away. Joy... 3 Adrienne, it sounds like BIG mistakes are being made -- is anyone being held accountable for any of it?Joy - that's something we asked officials with FDLE.We were told the organization is a repository for the information - and that any punishment within the clerk of courts would be an internal matter, and something they likely wouldn't discuss.
