From the Richmond Times Dispatch:
Concealed-carry permit questions
The application for a Virginia concealed-carry permit asks several mental-health-related questions:
Have you ever been committed to the custody of the commissioner of mental health, mental retardation and substance abuse services?
Have you been acquitted by reason of insanity, adjudicated legally incompetent, mentally incapacitated or adjudicated an incapacitated person by a court of Virginia or any other court?
Have you been involuntarily admitted to a facility or ordered to mandatory outpatient treatment, or were you the subject of a temporary detention order . . . who later agreed to voluntary admission?
Have you received mental-health treatment or substance-abuse treatment in a residential setting within the five years prior to the date of this application?
Are these questions fair? What back ups are there to make sure that people are being truthful? What prevents them from lying? Is this the honor system?
If Virginia is going to be relaxing its hand gun laws, what should the state do to ensure that guns are being bought by responsible people rather than by unstable people?
Does having a conceal-carry permit prevent a person from being limited to one hand gun purchase every 30 days?
