A Utah cop, who goes by Officer Anonymous, wrote an editorial for KSL.com in which he gives several long winded reasons why all gun owners should have to pass a psychological test before being permitted to purchase a weapon.
Let’s look at a few of these:
“…why are you in a hurry to buy a gun? Last-second Christmas gift? Forgot an anniversary and the wife really needs that pink Walther P22?”
Maybe your home was burglarized last night. Maybe your violent ex was just released from prison. Maybe gang activity has suddenly moved to your neighborhood. Maybe you’re a competition shooter and your primary gun broke right before a competition and you need to purchase a replacement. Maybe you need one for a last minute hunting trip.
