I wouldn't mind an expense to the gun owner. Owning a firearm should be difficult, not easy.<quoted text>
I should have phrased that better. The restrictions that are being debated for gun owners is more than the restrictions placed on sex offenders. Not you personally.
Dr Kellerman is who authored the study that the percentage you quoted. That study was not well done. I have not seen another study that came to same conclusion.
Now, if mental exams were to be required, how do you propose that the evaluations be completed, fairly, timely and without expense to the gun owner? What of US who already own a firearm?
With respect to mental exams, try to imagine what this country would look like without them. In fact, don't imagine it. Just look around you.
Also, I would appreciate your pointing out the flaws in Dr. Kellerman's study.
