Proposal would require anger management for bullets
You are not going to believe the idea one lawmaker has come up with in the ongoing gun debate.
A proposed law in Florida would require you to wait three days before buying a gun or ammunition if you haven't completed an anger management course. Houston psychiatrist Seth Silverman told KTRH this one is a head scratcher.
“There are a lot of variables that people are looking at. Most of them are hard to institute. There are a lot of problems identifying people that have mental health issues,” Silverman said.
Silverman says from a clinical standpoint there just isn't enough information about this sort of thing.
“It doesn’t make a lot of sense. There is very little data that is available to us to identify who is at risk,” Silverman explained.
Mike Clark of Collectors Firearms has an idea for the lawmaker who came up with this idea.
“It’s really a shame that we don’t have the ability to vet legislators before they are allowed to run for office by having them pass a battery of tests to see if they are even remotely qualified,” Clark said.
When it’s all said and done, Clark thinks the idea from Audrey Gibson is just not going to work.
“It’s another piece of fuzzy think on the part of legislators who have no earthly idea what they are talking about,” Clark stated.
Another provision of the proposed Florida bill; if you buy the bullets you have to take an anger management course every ten years. KTRH checked and didn't find any bill like this proposed in Austin this session for the state of Texas.
