I did not EVER say they need to see a shrink.
What I said is there should be some type of psych evaluation test or application.
This evaluation just tests mental attitude and stability and is only a part of the overall process required to purchase a semi automatic weapon.
You keep either intentionally or mistakenly twisting my words or not addressing what I posted so you are then one who is not being intellectually honest here.
So tell me other then you simply don't want ANY restrictions on purchasing a semi automatic weapon why you think what I have proposed is a bad idea.
And specifying that it is against your rights which is proven to be not legally correct or just reiterating that it is not the guns that are the problem is not a valid answer.
One more point: If I wanted to purchase a semi automatic weapon I would have no problem taking a psych test,(I am sure you will make some snide comment about this in your post) going thru a gun instructor class where they grant approval, waiting a longer period of time for a full background to be done and showing proof of having a proper way to secure the weapon.
What I don't understand is why you would.
Unless you have something to hide or feel you would not get one which is my point.
