it would be great if every firearm owner took his/her responsibility very seriously, and obtained as much training as they could afford/need. But many buy a pistol, maybe shoot it once,then lock it in the nightstand. And some people are plain stupid.
But we all share the same right, that shall not be infringed. Make it mandatory, as others point out, and the govt then controls it. Once they control it, they can make the bar as high as they want, or outright ban it. Nope.
