While, I'm a strong proponent of actively seeking and engaging in meaningful training, I abhor the idea that said training should be a requirement to excercise a Constitutional right.
The ability to carry a concealed weapon should be subject to a background check, no more. And that's more a selfishness on my part, because it is a convient way to avoid having to go through NICS for every gun purchase I make.
Training to purchase is even more asinine.
