"Results would be just as predictably dismal."
Somewhat of an overstatement, isn't it?
What percent of gun owners never had any formal training whatsoever?
Other than a relative or someone giving them a brief rundown?
Probably far more than half?
And isn't that their right?
Or should there be extensive governmental regulation, requiring "training" like the police all get?
Or is it true that even many of law enforcement get no particular formal training?
