Old ladies wouldnt ask some of these guys to carry their groceries for fear they might have a heart attack and yet the state has them carrying firearms.

Also, what accessories they can add to their weapons (including supressors) and remove all ammo restrictions. I promise you the gun owners of New Jersey will give you all the mental health and background checks you see fit provided they have the choice to choose a doctor they feel comfortable with.
