A friend of my son realized that he had a alcohol problem after college and put himself into a rehab facility for two weeks before giving up drinking for ever. It’s been 9 years now and he still hasn’t taken a single drink. He applied for his Fire Arms ID card,
(purchase permit) and the authorities told him he needed a phycologist to sign off before they issue him one. After about 6 sessions he asked about him signing off and the Dr said he wouldn’t because he doesn’t believe anyone should own a gun.
He stopped going and bow hunts. When he gun hunts he borrows one of mine. He’s allowed to borrow one but not to own or purchase one. He can go to a different Dr. but it is expensive. He was just accepted into the national Forrest ranger academy.
