    Should he be banned from carrying?
    There was a case of a man who forgot to wear his tin foil hat, and coincidentally aliens flew over and zapped his brain causing him to flip out. The aliens went back to Alpha Centauri and promised never to return.

    Should this guy be banned from carrying?

    Dang gone right he should be banned along with Scully. Mulder should never have listened to that cigarette smoking man.

    It is not the condition but rather the mental state.

    I'd say if he has one or two more of those episodes he may "ban" himself from breathing! Seriously I don't think an isolated incident is grounds to lose one's right to carry. Hell folks can have 3 or 4 DUI's and get behind the wheel w/o too much legal hassle and that's a VERY large caliber weapon that scares me far worse as I'm probably more likely to encounter that situation.

    Jon, I couldn't agree more.

    As I posted a page or two ago my wife has Epilepsy. She's pretty well regulated and has gone over a year without a Seizure. She's not lucky enough to have any warning before they come on. As such I drive her everywhere she goes.

    *no longer directed at Jon*
    Just because she's not allowed to drive does NOT mean she shouldn't be allowed to protect her own life while I'm not around. Is there some risk of her having a seizure while she has a firearm with her? Yes of course there's a risk. Is that risk greater, equal, or less than the risk of her being the victim of some form of violent crime in a major city? I'd suspect quite a bit less since she has less than one seizure a year, and has gone as long as 6 years without one.

    Why would you disarm an intelligent young lady. On the 1:8760 (24 hours in a day times 365 days in a year) chance she might have a seizure? In reality every seizure she has had has been within the first hour of her being awake.

    In her case as Jon pointed out, a single law aimed at people with a "condition" would be completely wrong in my opinion. Are there people who have one or more grandmal seizures a day? Yes, and those people likely have to evaluate for themselves what the risks of carrying a firearm are.

    This whole thread is trying to use a One Size Fits All Brush to paint a finely detailed picture and in it's very core is based on what I consider to be flawed logic.
