    Cruisr... tell your invisble buddy to stop hitting on my Imaginary Girlfriend, she is geeting peeved!

    On the subject at hand, wasn't long ago that some "mental health expert" wanted to classify obesity as a mental problem? If stuff like that is allowed, nothing will deter the other side to apply crap like that to deny CCW to regular folks.

    The real question is: who could judge, and by what standard? The risk of providing moveable goal posts to government hacks is that the dang things will be moved to suit, at some point. It's why no permission should be required, a la Vermont, assuming you're not on a list as a convicted or committed violent felon. That's a standard everyone can see and touch. The floaty, poorly-defined things are going to be a quagmire for the right to carry.

    Let's say they ask, "Have you ever been on any kind of medication for a mood disorder?"

    I'd have to answer "yes" to that one, because I've been on prescription meds for PMS before.

    Who could judge, and by what standard, indeed.

    Whenever you let the government determine the standards you are:

    1) acknowledging that it is a priviledge not a right and

    2) taking an awful risk that anti's will subvert the procedure.

    One of our arguments has always been that criminals will find a way to get guns.

    A mental test will do nothing to prevent that. I don't care how sick the VT shooter was; he was determined to do what he did and the is no way we could stop him from getting a gun if he really wanted one.

    I used to have to take those stupid tests to work at nooculer (Bushism for nuclear) plants.

    Once my uncle failed one. He made the mistake of honestly answering the question about alcohol consumption. He said he drank 6 beers everyday and sometimes more on the weekends.

    So he got called in for an eval. The phsyc eval guy was a big fat dude (300lbs easy). He talked to my uncle for a while and finally said he was considering denying him access to the plant. He said "Mr.**** I think you have a drinking problem." To which my uncle, who was fed up with his BS by this point, said "Oh yeah , well I think you got a eating problem you fat Son of a *****, and you still work here don'tcha."

    Needless to say, he was denied access, but we all got a good laugh out of it back at the hotel.

    If passing a state-mandated psycological test was required to obtain a concealed carry permit, could you pass??
    Sure I could.

    Just give me a few days to brush up my politicaly correct doublspeak and I'll act like a liberal socialist for as long as it takes to pass the test.

    No problem. I'll wear my Hillary for President T-shirt,my little blue U.N. flag hanging out of my shirt pocket,my bright red 'Guns are Bad" ball cap, and I'll have a rolled up copy of the "Rolling Stone" magazine in the back pocket of my Dockers.


    See...
    no problem.

    Id be willing to be that I aced it...
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Yeah, without a doubt. Would it be fair to deny someone else that may have otherwise passed a CCW course? HELL NO!!!
