    In Wisconsin where I live, the state assembly passed a bill that provides information on people who are mentally ill in order to keep them from buying a gun because the mental health information would be available when doing the background check. But here's a question: As far as those individuals who already own them, or buy them privately, would the police departments have that information if they came across a gun owner and wanted to determine if they could legally own it? They can already look up the person's criminal record to see if they're a felon, but would they also now be able to find out if they have a mental illness history?

    most likely IF YOU GIVE THEM A REASON. if you have had a history stay off every radar there is. and be happy everyday you wake up with a gun in you possession. even if its legal or not if they are in the middle of another "complaint" (whatever it may be, speeding for example,) if they wanna bust your ass you have given them a reason. be careful what ever you do legally or NOT.
