Let me say that I am not anti-gun or pro-gun. I do not own any guns, but I come from a family of hunters who loved their guns though they never owned any assault style weapons. As you know, to drive a vehicle, you have to take two tests. One is a written test and one is an actual driving test. The reason for this is that vehicles are dangerous instruments that can both kill you and other innocent people if not operated safely. So, my question is, would you consider supporting a system where to possess a gun, you must have a valid firearm license (not just application based, but test-based license) based on the type of firearm you are using? The test would involve three parts. 1) The first part would be a written test focused on the what you can and cannot do under the law with the type of firearm in which you are applying for a license. 2) The second part would be a shooting test that would require you to demonstrate you are capable of loading, shooting and securing the firearm. 3) The third part would be a psych test administered by an accredited psychiatrist or psychologist who was certified to administer the test. We can debate how often you would have to repeat these tests later, but for now, let's say once every 10 years. For the conservatives, if this meant the government and anti-gun control supporters would back off trying to create new restrictions, would you support something like this? For the liberals, would this type of testing and re-testing resolve enough of your concerns to support something like this?
