IMHO, the MAIN thing a CCW class should teach is safe gun handling and the law. The law is complicated and can change so information on where to get the latest law info. should be provided.
As far as a first time handgun owner being restricted from getting a CCW I don't agree. However, I do think it would be nice if the people teaching the class actually evaluated the person's knowledge of gun safety and the laws taught and if a person could not pass a simple test they should NOT have a CCW.
