Hhmm, an interesting idea. But who decides what qualifies as "nonviolent"? And, will the same standard be applied in every state?

The Court may take up this case...though, The Court has treated many 2A cases as radioactive...their only concern is the integrity of the court and not the integrity of the Constitution...Does anyone think that a mere Court ruling will result in New Yorkers, in the Big Apple more specifically, being able to strap -up? Nope, The Sullivan Act is clearly contrary to past Court rulings...

alas, in 1911 "big feller" Sullivan, a Tammany leader (corrupt Irish Catholic society) in the Bowery, and machine's spokesman in the state legislature, touted a concept of "the common man will only misbehave..." while he pushed citizen's gun control legislation to "curb" street violence under the auspices of of public safety [Irish criminals had guns while the Italian criminals didn't] resulting in it being a misdemeanor for owning & carrying a felon which mandates are still in effect today In many states, CA, NJ, ad naseam.

very interesting read for those interested: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/little-gun-history/

Unfortunately, there are far too many that are not in custody that STILL shouldn't have access to firearms. Same for many with mental problems.
The bar for denying a God given right should be high enough to inconvenient governments ability to intervene. It should never be convenient to deny a persons ability to own firearms.

Mental illness most of the time is arbitrary. Don’t need mental health professionals dictating who is allowed to exercise a God given right because Peter struggles with bipolar disorder.

Alas the recent shootings where the shooter's MH was...
1) boulder co - untreated [ignored] mental health issues
2) Atlanta ga - untreated [ignored] mental health issues
3) Aurora CO - under care for mental health but CSU MH professional didn't notify LE
4) Parkland Fl, - under care but community MH & educational systems let the client down
5) Texas church - under care but USAF didn't follow national protocols and report to fbi.
6) sandy hook - known MH issues caregiver raised shooter as "normal"
7) SC church - untreated [ignored] MH issues
8) uni VA - under care but UVA MH professional wasn't allowed to report to LE by uni administration

the list goes on...

ARBITRARY...really...

deity given right...says so in the holy books ~ where?

state/federal legislative members mandated MH professional the oversight but not the reporting protocol to notify the FBI about "peter's MH"!

Let’s make every infraction of society a felony. Not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign, felony. Stepping on a crack, felony. Let your grass get taller than 2 inches, felony. ETC, ETC, ETC. 90% of the population now cannot own firearms.

The Feds already make almost everything a felony, and Federal "crimes" that should be infractions (like speeding on the George Washington Memorial Parkway) are misdemeanors instead.

And there lies part of the problem - federal overkill. But it is all part of the "power grab" by Big Brother Government that has been worming their way into areas where they should not be for over 50 years.
