If someone wants to offer training subsidies to take classes on a VOLUNTARY basis then I would have no problem getting behind that.
If you want to make gun ownership conditional on taking taking that course then i would have a problem with that.
If maybe the county or state would want to wave a CCW or purchase permit fee based on taking the course I dont think I would have a problem with that either.
Im not too thrilled with getting the NRA mafia involved either but it might end up being a necessary evil to standardize a course standard in the beginning but once thats done I would open it up to any competent instructor.
Now having a test to be able to vote?? HELL YES.
