I don't know about where you live but around here there is generally little or no hassle in getting a permit and certainly no studying of the law. We fill out the forms, get fingerprints and get a permit. Sometimes there are classes involved, which might even MENTION some portion of the physical force laws but that's as far as it goes.
Short story, most people with permits (around here) don't know the first dang thing about the physical force laws and what they do "know" is here-say and nonsense.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
