Typical condescending Canadian logic.
No one is asking them to pass a medical exam here; but you already know that, you're just making it a habit to be our resident jackass.
These are basic police officer recruitment exams that ensure the candidate is capable of comprehending and wisely enforcing the rudimentary principles of law enforcement. In other words, they need to be able to understand what the law says and enforce it properly.
Knowing the Obama Administration's stance on gun control, what they are trying to create here is a populace, that is incapable of defending themselves, putting their safety into the hands of police officers who can barely pass their own competency exams. That's NOT the recipe for public safety; but again, you already know that.
