Here in CT you go through a background check,a class, and live fire. That is a "national standard" I can live with. Heck, I did it to get my carry permit. That was the purpose. I didn't think it was overbearing or out of line. Is that a form of gun control that scares people? It's common sense. Show me you ain't mental, or a felon, sit in class and learn about firearm laws and show you can use one. Outrageous! Now that I think about it , I'm gonna turn my permit in on Monday. Ok, maybe not
No that is a bearable standard.
In fact it is so easy that the GAO/Comptroller will most likely find it to not be adequate, and that CT needs much more stringent regulations.
