To hell with "due process" lock them up.
That would work a heck of a lot better than getting rid of "Assault Weapons." Of course we both know the NRA did not say that, but whatever. They did say have a database of those that ARE mentally ill and violent. Interestingly the same thing Obama wanted to do(cue fanfare). Maybe you confused the statements the NRA said. They wanted to lock up violent criminals. And they also wanted to get the mentally ill the help they need.
