Dear Minister of National Security: May I take the opportunity to congratulate you on what appears to be your first positive achievement as Minister of National Security.
Since most crimes appear to be committed by altered/anti-social minds or those who feel that they are above the law, may I however ask the following questions?
1. Is there any drug-testing requirement for the licensing of firearms?
2. Is there a psychiatric evaluation/screening for persons who are being issued firearms licenses?
3. Is there any facility for testing for being under the influence of alcohol and drugs for those who brandish their licensed firearm at nightclubs and at the press?
4. How easy will it be to frame someone and lock them up for 15 years for allegedly threatening?
If these are not being considered are we law-abiding citizens going to be at the mercy of those few whom the “illegally appointed” commissioner decides to issue a license to?
Thanks for your consideration.
