There is some merit to that argument. But, is it enough?
There's not much merit to that argument at all.

Pennsylvania doesn't require any training to get a license to carry firearm. Vermont doesn't even have permits or licenses to carry handguns, even concealed. I don't think the statistics will show that Pennsylvania or Vermont is significantly less safe in terms of firearms incidents than nearby states that require training.
