Re: David Rappaport in "The Most Toys"

It's an awful story. He attempts suicide in March. Presumably he gets some sort of help, or maybe not. In either case, he then legally purchases a gun around April 17th (according to IMDb), and kills himself with it 15 days later.

As far as I know, background checks in CA are supposed to catch things like suicide attempts, but I don't know what the process was in 1990. Either way, he was granted a weapon that he should not have been allowed to receive. Was he even a US citizen?
