Florida's Mental Health & Guns Bill

My first reaction was negative, but reading the text of it, I see why NRA is backing it.  It is narrowly written, but has the potential to disarm some severely mentally ill persons who are hard to commit right now, but pretty obviously are a danger to self or others.  It is no substitute for correcting the mistake of deinstitutionalization, but it isn't a serious problem, and might occasionally do some good.
