We all know that Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr. is a huge anti-gun activist. It is also public knowledge in Illinois that he is a holder of an Illinois Firearms Owner ID (a FOID card). This state-issued ID that allows Illinois residents to legally purchase firearms and ammunition is supposed to be revoked for people that have been admitted to a mental health facility. So, will the state revoke Jackson’s FOID card?
Rep. Jackson was admitted to a mental health facility last month claiming “exhaustion” but it has since been learned he suffers from a more serious mental condition such as depression. His own wife said that he’s been “completely debilitated by depression.”
In fact, on August 13 it was reported that Jackson is suffering from a bipolar disorder.”
Now, many anti-gun, anti-Constitution activists like Jackson are fond of saying that mental patients should have all their rights to self protection instantly removed once they are identified with any sort of disorder. The Brady Campaign against guns, for one, has since it began said that anyone with a mental problem should be prevented from access to guns. More HERE
