    "Any good sociopathic liar worth a grain of salt can fool a test or a psychiatrist for just long as they want to."

    Isnt the above reason enough to restrict the sale of guns...... Just think of the potential maniacs we already have out there...... ticking time bombs just waiting to explode and wreak havoc upon the innocent......

    Some of the actions and outbursts I have witnessed on this very forum have lead me to believe that this old world is full of violent nut jobs just waiting for the right moment to whip out a gun and start blasting.

    Take the guns out of the hands of these people before they can start popping their corks on us normal well adjusted citizens.

    And of course.... for you crime statistics folks out there....... You take a gun out of the hands of an ordinary non criminal citizen ( But who is likely to be a maniac waiting to happen)...you also take another gun off the street that can be stolen and used by a criminal.

    Like killing two birds with one stone..... logical and efficient....

    I believe even old pointy eared spock would agree....

    Reoccurring certification or at least personality test would be beneficial.
    My nephew went thru a personality analysis with a professional psychologist when applying for a job as a police officer. He was rejected by the psychologist because he replied when asked if he believed the Bible was the actual Word of God that "Yes, the Bible is the Word of God" and I believe it. My nephew was also a part-time Baptist minister.

    So, much for a professional psychological test for gun ownership! BTW, my nephew was hired a short time later by the Minneapolis police department and served with them as an officer for 12 years before he passed away.

    So, perhaps I would lose my gun ownership rights if I provide the wrong political or religous answers to their questions.

    Well technically believing in an invisible man who controls everything we do is a little nuts....at least that's what they told my sister when she brought her imaginary boyfriend to meet the parents.

    Besides...only parts of the Bible are the "words of God".

    Actually....God didn't write any of the bible himself....it all came from some middle men....so maybe that's why he was denied by the psych.

    Yes, believing in invisible men is a bit off kilter. What does this have to do with understanding that the Universe is of intelligent design by a Creator that is beyond our physical comprehension?

    Unfortunately us Kiwi's do not get a better sex allowance from our federal govt, so we have to do with sheep. As we are multicultural, so must be our sheep, hence the large number. barbar

    The guy is a lunatic (in our western opinion), so you restrict what weapons he can have, does this sound like a familiar argument.

    I find that your contention that just because he said the bible was the actual word of God he was denied entry based on one comment a little hard to believe.

    Please

    Perhaps there is a little MORE to the story?

    And did you miss the part about an appeal process in a previous post?

    Most of the people screaming for more laws don't have half a clue what the laws regarding firearms are.

    Heck, I've had to explain the difference between a semi-automatic rifle and a machine gun to some of these goofs.
    So what are your laws on gun safety? Ours are well spelled out and easy to look up. I am sure you have some, why are the gun crowd not pointing to them showing they are already there?

    And for those who keep citing other statistics in other countries, please keep in mind that Americans are used to more overall freedoms (Canadians cannot even have radio stations dedicated to what they prefer to listen to) and the U.S. is much more geographically accessable than countries such as Japan, the UK and Australia.
    Your reaching there buddy.

    But here in the US we already have certifications for concealed carry permits and the ability to issue them.

    Why not just extend this to if a person wants to purchase a semi automatic weapon they need to have a similar permit prior to purchasing one.

    I have yet to have anyone say or explain why they are not in favor of such a regulation other then it is against their rights which is BS because that it simply not the case or their contention that it won't do anything to prevent these killings which is also a bunch of BS.
    As I have asked, what are the requirements to own a firearm in the U.S., we need to be licensed and renew our licenses every five years.

    You just have to be a citizen with no felony convictions on your record.....that's about it.
