Get this...what's proposed in NJ legislature

1) Anyone buying/owning a gun will be subject to a mental test


Sounds good on paper, but what standard will they use? And more importantly, who will do the grading? Some of these people doing the shooting weren't out and out psychotic, they were ver antisocial. Not everybody that is antisocial is going to go on a shooting rampage. Where will the lines be drawn?

2) Before you can buy/own a gun in NJ, your home has to be 'inspected' by the police to make sure you have 'secured' your guns from children.

This reminds me of my chronic pain rotation in residency training. Had an attending that before she'd accept a patient, they had to show her a picture of a safe, in their home, with them next to it, where they'd keep their narcotics. In theory to keep kids/friends/other family members from using the drugs.

So what, you have a safe. Unless you check 24/7, doesn't mean they'll keep things there or keep others from getting the combination. Useless.
