I am trying to see what I missed. Basically its saying if someone is a certified nut they should be prevented from buying or owing weapons. Who can disagree with that?

The question is WHO decides who is a certified nut. Biden (and many more Demoncrats) have called lawful gunowners “crazy” or “nuts” on many occasions.
Depends on the definition of "certified nut".
Have you, OR ANY MEMBER OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD, ever seen a psychiatrist of psychologist for depression, anxiety issues, PTSD, or any other psychological issue?
Would you be comfortable with that medical data being stored in a gun-check database?
If a psych is sent a governmental query about you, asking him to certify that you are OK to own a firearm, what percentage of psychs will stick their necks out to so certify? Will their liability insurance provider even ALLOW them to give a positive answer to such an official query?
Government doctors to certify who is "nuts"?

Yeah, but who defines what is mentally ill? Soon all people with conservative belief could be labeled mentally ill.
So if someone comes up with some new term and defines it as a psychological malady, the most sane people here could be regarded as nutcases.
Where it used to be, "In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king.", now they just want to call you insane and put your eye out.
