Senators passed a bill yesterday that creates a process for people to annul their mental health records and remove their names from a national gun background-check system. The vote was 17-7, with four Democrats joining Republicans after several attempts to table the bill.
[ . . . ]
Under the bill, anyone can file a petition with the court to annul their mental health records after termination of mandated guardianship, or after the expiration of an involuntary treatment or mandatory commitment order. A judge must grant the petition unless there is â€śclear and convincingâ€ť evidence that the personâ€™s mental state still poses a likelihood of danger to himself and others or might harm the public interest.
The bill still has a long way to go, including through the House, where passage is uncertain, and — of course — finally to (D) Gov. Hassan.
