During the current US debate on new gun laws, a question occurred to me.
Suppose we manage to pass a law which would prohibit those deemed mentally
unstable from having a firearm.  If a crazy person was caught with a
firearm, couldn't she just plead insanity?  If that didn't work and the
judge declared her sane, couldn't she then plead innocent of owning a gun
while insane?
