California now requires psych test for armed security

From the BSIS (Bureau of Security and Investigative Services) website: Effective July 1, 2018, a BSIS security guard registrant seeking an initial BSIS firearms permit must complete an assessment for the purposes of determining whether he/she possesses, at the time of the assessment, appropriate judgment, restraint, and self-control to carry a firearm while on duty.

So in addition to the strict California requirements to purchase a handgun, the mandatory background check and training needed to get a BSIS guard card, the additional training and testing requirements to get a BSIS gun card; now armed security must pay for and take a subjective test. Keep in mind, BSIS is only certifying security guards to carry exposed firearms, which is a constitutional right anyway.
