How is that not a problem? Obviously motorists need some training before getting on the road unassisted and I think drivers licenses are good things for obvious reasons and I think something similar should exist for ALL firearm ownership, and mainly I think everyone should have to undergo a psych evaluation by a non government entity prior to ownership.

So as with driving already is, I think gun ownership should be a legal privilege, not a completely free right. It already is a priveledge because they do a background check if buying from a store, but I don't think the psych eval idea is a bad one.


A lot more driving deaths per year than gun-related deaths. I am more worried about the idiots driving around me than someone with a gun.
