So, should the government be involved in mandating that gun owners recieve training?
I'm all for people getting the training they need. I think for CCW permits, an applicant should demonstrate safety, and their ability to shoot a reasonable course of fire if they want to carry a firearm in public.
But, I'm against the government being involved in mandatory training, to their standards to own a firearm.
