the question to ask is not do we need to force training on everyone if they want to buy a weapon, but what does the training need to do?
there are many posts on this forum and others were it is felt that the training provided by the us army, navy, airforce, marines, national guard, at basic training is INSUFFICIENT to qualify them to have a concealed handgun permit.
so if that level of training, even that offered to the MPs is useless, how are we going to determine what constitutes a proper training? basic training for mps gives them far more training and skills then the standard 200 dollar 8 hour chl class.
or do you want to make it so that if i want to get a little singleshot 22 for my kid, i and my kid need to spend a weekend at gunsite?
