When they want folks to submit to “testing”
Individuals seeking a permit to buy firearms in New Jersey would have to submit results of a psychological evaluation before they could buy a gun, under a bill introduced yesterday in the Legislature by West New York Assemblywoman Angelica Jimenez.
The measure would also require applicants to have an on-site inspection and evaluation of the household where the firearm would be located.
The bill was one of 18 introduced yesterday by several lawmakers in the state Senate and Assembly intended to curb gun violence in New Jersey, which already has some of the nation’s toughest gun laws.
In addition to Jimenez’ mandatory psychological screenings, bills call for home inspections for those who want to buy firearms; having prospective buyers list the members of their households with mental illnesses; requiring sales of ammunition be face-to-face; and further shrinking bullet magazines’ capacities from 15 to five or 10.
New Jersey is easily already in the Top 10 of states with unjust (and likely unconstitutional) firearms laws, and now she wants to pick the brains and search the homes of law abiding citizens.
As Joe would say, this will be used as evidence against her at her trial.
