    Depends on the state. I'd be good in the state of confusion.

    I think it would depend very much on the parameters decided upon.

    I'd say yes we'd probably all pass a sensible test but - who writes the test and how ''sensible'' would it be?

    It would I am sure be possible for Brady to come up with a test no one could pass!!

    Let's not allow that to happen in the first place. How many "schools of shrinkolgy" are there and they can't agree if there is genitalia envy, surprise, emotion or vascular reaction and you want them to check up on me? Hell no!

    No problem if it is at VA, FL or NV.

    Now, if the test is in DC, NYC, MD, Chicago or California.....

    I agree , Miggy. The reason I asked was because my older sister is a retired shrink, anti-gun, liberal, and everything I'm not. She stated that nearly all of the people now carrying guns have no business doing so, and if there was a required psycological test , there would be very few permits issued, and "everybody would be safer". Then I got to thinking.....could I pass such a test? My answer was yes - a few years ago, but doubtful now. It's like P95Carry said, it would depend on the parameters, and everybody knows it would be slanted to the left. I am surprised it hasn't been considered as a way to prevent concealed carry being a reality. Oh, I have long since stopped trying to talk reason with her, facts and truth only makes her mad.

    not relevant....not until they do the same tests for idiots with pens, blogs or access to the internet op-ed pages...

    I probably wouldn't pass because I'm a conservative, well adjusted male...or in the terms of lefty psychologists, judgemental and paranoid (for wanting to carry a gun)

    Yes, because they believe their own lies. To them it isnt a lie.


    I doubt I'd pass a pysch test, I'd have to much fun messing with them.

    Ask her to show you the reference where she learned this "fact" and watch her reaction. I expect she has seen nothing even close to saying this unless it's just another shrink throwing out an opinion.....
