Patriot Groups throughout Arizona
In my opinion it is long past time anyone trying to purchase a weapon be forced to submit to psychological testing prior to the merchant putting a weapon in his or her hands. Now I am all for second amendment rights, however, I believe some controls need to be in place. It is obvious the current system doesn't work. One can have a clean record and yet still be a lunatic -- there are no real safeguards against psychos buying weapons. Not all nutters look as though they might go on a shooting rampage at any time, but a psych profile would go along way in ensuring unstable people are kept from harming themselves or others.
Along with this I believe being able to take a weapon into a bar is the most ridiculous thing our lawmakers have come up with aside from legalizing fireworks in a state with an abundance of dry brush. Bad enough there are individuals that drive while drunk, now the legislature has put a gun in their hands while they become intoxicated. As drinking and driving is a bad mix so are alcohol and firearms.
