    Unfortunately the logic going forward is that the background check "obviously isn't enough" so "we have to do more!"

    I hear this is a common question at indoor ranges....

    Or at least at the Clackamas County PSTC. (or so I hear)

    At the Clackamas County PSTC there isn't a background check. You fill out a few bits of paperwork regarding liability, etc. You watch a video about safety, you take a test, pass it and you are good to go.

    You can shoot your own guns, their ammo only. If you want to rent a gun you need to bring your own. That way you can't just walk in off the street, pay a little and commit suicide with their guns. They figure that if you have your own gun already, you would commit suicide at home and not at the range....

    Ann Fukuyama... Hmm... that's an interesting last name. Sounds a lot like F*** ya mama. It would be torture to grow up with that name.

    Didnt something like this happen in florida, where the mom shot her son then herself. Terrible. Noticing her name is japanese at least she didn't knife herself and whack her guts everywhere. And for the ignorant people out there my dads name was Phuc Tran, imagine being in the army with that name like he was lol.

    We had a lady years ago purchase a firearm from us. The background check was delayed and she left until we were to call her. About 30 minutes after she left, we got a call from a friend of hers asking me if she had been in trying to purchase a gun. She told me that she was going to commit suicide. We got the police involved and she canceled her purchase.

    Sorry to hear that, I hope you didn't inheret the family name, lol. No worries, I had a lot of vietnamese friends growing up in California and Phuc was actually more common than one might think.

    There's a similar article i read about four separate gun range shooting suicides in florida..

    it's really just sick that they do this in this places.. i'm not saying they do it somewhere else.. but man, it just makes it difficult for the rest of us after the whole media and political frenzy..

    what I wonder is what good would a background check do in these situations? A crime was not committed with the firearm after it was rented. Background checks will not give mental evaluations.

    Sorry I was not done, I'm using my cell to reply. Anyways, a background check will provide criminal history. I'm sure there are a lot of suicidal folks out there with clean records. Am I making any sense?

    yeah, you make perfect sense, perhaps the use is to prevent people with previous violence records or psychotic treatments from renting guns.. but i guess no matter how we look at it, there's really isn't a fool proof thing we could do to prevent these things from happening, but a background check might help a little bit, but it definitely wouldn't prevent it all together..

    on top of my head, the only thing i could think about is a psychological evaluation for anyone who wants to rent guns, but that would be impractical and silly, and i wouldn't want to go through one everytime i want to fire a few rounds..
