    should be on folks prescribed hardcore pyschotropic pharmeceutical drugs.
    Folks can wait 3 days for their dope.
    After all, people do not kill people. Guns and drugs do.

    Waiting period?

    Folks on drugs, drug addicts and alcoholics should not have any access to guns. Period.

    IN ky you have to give a drug test every 30 days if on narcotic pain pills.
    And you cannot be on them for over 30 days unless you go to a pain clinic.

    A cookie cutter approach to a problem.

    Took effect july 12. I may not be able to get my hard pain meds for my cancer pain any more.
    Will just blow myself up on the capitol steps maybe?

    Maybe if we stopped focusing on pot-smoking grandmas we would have the man power to go after illegal weapons.

    Cause and effect. No matter how much dope he consumed, without guns it would have been much more difficult to kill and maim so many so quickly. Arson, maybe, or a bomb but neither method is easier or more effective than a high volociety semi automatic firearm with a large capacity magazine.

    The ability to fire rounds with little recoil at the rate of one per second or so is likely a more effective and surer way to kill and maim a large population than arson or a bomb, unless the bomb is huge.

    Don't forget the SUVs that also kill. Need to get a background check and waiting period on those when you go into the auto dealer.

    Even driving an SUV down a crowded sidewalk is unlikely to create the carnage created by on semi auto with a large magazine - try not to be an idiot.

    I can see the need for background checks and waiting periods.

    However, in return, there should be no need for gun licenses, and open carry laws should be the norm everywhere, except on private property where the owner doesn't allow it of course.
