    The gun debate rages on and on with no one really changing their minds. Well, that’s sort of the definition of insanity (doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results each time).

    With that in mind, I asked myself how we could approach this issue in a way that hasn’t been done before. There is always a solution to every problem. It’s just a matter of finding it.

    So I have a completely serious proposal for the proponents of gun control. If the 2A supporters agreed to use tax payer money to have every single firearm manufactured attend an extensive and comprehensive mental health evaluation (including training firearms on the value of human life), would you then agree to allow all citizens to own any type of firearm they desire - without restriction?

    (*Note that I will have 0 tolerance for trolling in this thread and will report every instance. Either answer honestly/seriously or move along to another thread)

    I’m pro gun and pro 2a. The only problem I see is one they won’t pay for it and too who picks the psychologist or psychiatrist. If the left hand picks them then it’s a bias opinion because there not going to pay him to pass people. It comes down to getting rid of HIPPA when it comes to gun purchases. They run a local psychological check but they don’t do a National like they do with a criminal background check. If you do a national psych check you can catch more people with psych issues.

    The gun "debate" does not rage onward, we have the solution; everyone carries, that way the "good guys" carry the day like they carry their guns. Teachers maintain safety and control in schools via the gun. And really now, we can't even get our police to attend an extensive and comprehensive mental health evaluation (including training firearms on the value of human life) that works, rather obviously.

    I tell ya what I disagree with his proposal because it can not be done fairly, but you provide no rational at all for your stance be specific list a proposal loser.

    You don’t think we need any evidence what he’s offering would help? Strange...

    One issue that would arise is holding the psychiatrist responsible for anyone they certify who goes off the deep end at some later time and commits some crime using a firearm. That would be enough for psychiatrists to refuse to be certify someone to be allowed to purchase.possess firearms.

    So, I don't find your proposal as a reasonable course of action. There is no way that I see that the future behavior of an individual can be predicted with any measure of accuracy.
