BTW, IF we force drug tests for assistance, at least we should give them assistance AND a drug treatment path to help out. People need chances to put their lives back together.
By making it a clear "yes or no" test, it leaves many Americans with no help or hope. If we are ever going to fix the drug problems in the country, we should help people who need it, not cut them off.
As for gun owners, I'm not sure what drug testing will achieve. It sounds like a good idea, but what's the goal? While many shootings are drug related- it's drug trafficking, not usage. And I'd wager that legal alcohol have lead to more shootings than most people think.
Still, a logical weapon restriction that will even help with handguns is a magazine hard limit and a firing rate limit. That does not ban guns, all it does is put how many rounds can be put out at a given time, which should reduce the amount of deaths- even in a city area where it's not considered a mass shooting.
Nobody has come up with a logical reason why we need guns that shoot more than 6 rounds at a rate as fast as you can pull the trigger. They provide no benefit to anyone.
