Having psychiatrists as tipsters will warn authorities before one of their patients goes on a killing spree; it will also help remove guns from the hands of the mentally ill. But any Heroin addict will still be able to get an assault rifle. Drug dealers keep them for protection against robbery and will lend the rifle to the customer that buys the most dope. Laws must be passed making it a class one felony for a drug dealer to sell a weapon to one of their clients.
