Doe v. Governor of Pa.

3rd Circuit

October 14, 2020

In Doe v. Governor of Pa., two John Does wanted to buy guns. They were thwarted, though, because both had been involuntarily committed under Section 302 of Pennsylvania’s Mental Health Procedures Act. As a result of their commitments, Section 6105 of the PA Uniform Firearms Act prohibited them from possessing a firearm. The two Does argued that the MHPA stripped them of their Second Amendment rights without procedural due process. The 3rd Circuit disagreed and found that the statutory scheme provided adequate due process.
