Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich said, "Anyone who wishes to obtain a license to bear arms will have to undergo an exam by a family physician and a psychologist. If they do not pass the psychological exam, they will have to undergo an exam by a psychiatrist."
He said this during discussions at the Internal Affairs Committee on reducing weapons headed by MK Miri Regev. He added that currently there more than 290,000 weapons in the hands of the public, and that the goal was to reduce this number. (Omri Efraim)
