    I think the 10-yr waiting period offers a reasonable middle ground that should satisfy both sides just enough (i.e., mild dissatisfaction on both sides). Problems could arise around having just the psych evaluation measure; having both helps mitigate that problem.

    A question for all you on the other side of the debate. Would this, or even just the heightened psychological screening be enough for you?

    Everything has a cost, including the price of liberty. First Amendment costs us the ability to deal with hate mongers like the Westboro Baptist Church, Fourth Amendment protects thievery, Fifth Amendment lets people get away with murder, Sixth Amendment costs government a whole bunch of money, not to mention exacerbate the problems caused by 4th and 5th. The Second Amendment has costs too, as that clever left wing comic points out.

    Sucks that we don't live in a candy-cane world where we can get something for nothing, but here we are.

    As @Victor will tell you, you only think that way cuz you're an ignorant American with no experience of the world beyond your borders.

    What sucks is that I still can't get rid off my foreign accent, despite being an ignorant American.

    To this point, the main thing that annoys me is, yes, the gun debate is more or less finished for the foreseeable future in this country, but there's this level of paranoia among gun owners that persists. Someone totally falsely imagining a threat to guns with zero evidence or support for the claim whatsoever *cough*Obama*cough* pushes people's entire political ideology. Oftentimes it will become their number one issue driven by nothing by a thick mist of unsubstantiated paranoia.

    Of course, it's not the only issue driven almost exclusively by jumping at shadows, but it is one of the most prevalent.

    at work today, there was a guy working on electrical somethingorother outside in the back alley. i work in virginia, which is an open carry state.
    this guy had a 9mm in a holster strapped to his belt, and was indeed carrying openly. the weapon was plainly visible to anyone, whether you were looking for it or not.

    unafraid, i asked him how many times he'd been robbed this week.
    anyone wanna guess what his answer was?
