Those military not covered in the law should take the course and pass the live fire test too.

Fyi, I'm prior Marine Infantry. I'm getting the permit and taking the live fire test. It's a large silhouette target at close range. If somebody can't put 21 of 30 rounds in the black I certainly wouldn't want them handling a gun.
"zero weapons training" in four years? No basic training? No OCS? No re-qualifications?
