I took my committment seriously. But you cant force that on people, nor can you force them to take their 1A rights or any others seriously. All can be abused, but that doesnt mean the rest of us should be punished for individual's acts. If there are true abuses, then 'individuals' should be punished.
Edit: many people in this country grow up with guns and learn alot of this sort of thing that way. Again....waste of time to force training on them that is meant for...beginners? Home owners that occasionally want to carry? Urban people? Rural people?
If HB 47 proposed to remove all training requirements then we could discuss what you want to discuss. But that isn't the case and isn't the topic of this thread. If you want to discuss removing requirements all together, you might want to start your own thread, in the 2A section of the forum.

I didn't say that it would affect your son, I said it may or may not interest you.
I have often wondered why the "Full faith and credit" clause doesn't apply to CCL's. It applies to marriage licenses, driver's licenses, etc. Somehow though, it doesn't apply to professional licenses. Interesting. So, is a CCL a professional license, or a license for the general public? I really wonder what this line of arguing would accomplish in the federal court system.
Jemsaal, I hope you meant to say "something I'm not willing to have" when refering to a stronger federal gov.
Sucks to have the mind work faster than the fingers. :embarassed:
