    In my mind it definitely would. Training is one main reason I hold LEO's to a higher standard than I would an ordinary citizen in situations where violence is used. With training comes higher expectations.

    Apparently I'm stupid enough to read this thread. Last one in the door, I can carry, but not everyone is as good as me, or should blah blah blah.

    It is a guaranteed right for EVEYONE. Get over it already.

    I know a few people that IMO shouldn't be walking around with a gun but it's there right to do so and I just avoid hanging out with them.

    I had to sit through a handgun class at the county sheriff's office in order to get my concealed carry permit. (Nobody in the cop shop bothered to tell me that veterans didn't need to fork over $20 and take the class).

    The class was pretty routine firearm safety stuff and some pretty good info on shooter rights/responsibilities here in Oregon, so I ended up being OK about having to take the class.

    What surprised me afterwards was the hour of utterly stupid questions from some of the other people in the class. Some of those people were so dumb I was amazed that they could find their way to the class, much less carry a gun. Until that time, I had only really considered the issue of me carrying a weapon. I came away reminded that there are some real armed morons in our midst. Sobering thought.

    OMG, yes! I could barely contain myself from telling one guy to shut up when he started a caliber war question. Both my girlfriend and I rolled our eyes everytime this guy spoke. He started with the question "should I use steel or metal ammo?" Uhhhhhhh . . . . Steel is a metal, THEY'RE ALL MADE OF METAL!!!!!

    Dont consider myself too stupid to carry. But nobody ever considers themselves stupid. Bing open minded, able to learn and able to change and adapt is a good start for not being stupid - been working on that stuff for awhile now. I think since I even started to consider carrying I have learned A WHOLE LOT and opened myself up to alot more information and knowledge.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    Good comment here from Doodle:

    Once the threat is stopped stop using force.
    And it looks like most readers here understood the intent of the article's author. But some members of this board have said, repeatedly, that if they have to draw, they are going to fire.

    Any regular reader of Armed Citizen can attest, along with anyone familiar with Gary Kleck's research, that most defensive uses of a firearm do not result in someone being shot.

    Drawing your weapon means that you're ready to shoot, but if you are in control of your firearm then you have control over everything that happens from the moment you clear leather. The person you draw on has choices to make that affect the final outcome. Statistically speaking, it appears that the majority of such persons decide that being shot isn't in their best interest. The minority get to learn what being shot at is like.
