When we first got our carry law we could carry anywhere we pleased the first year. But le got their panties in such a knot 'with all those untrained people' in courthouses, etc. that they got the legislature to add all these prohibited areas to a new bill the next year.
Session(2011 iirc) before last the legislature (responding to all the church shootings and all the other prohibited area shootings) decided to give le what they wanted with the training on the enhanced permit and opened up the prohibited areas to those with this training.
Hope this makes sense,
Yes, I have the training and it's a basic NRA pistol course. It cost me $125.00 for the course. The decal on the back of my permit showing that I am now certified cost nothing.
ETA: 9mm: re:federal law; look again at SIMP's last post.
