all the stuff folks need to know at least think about before traveling interstate, or attempting to
board an air-line.
There is plenty to be taught. Now, I'm not suggesting stretching anything into a two week course,
but seriously, 10-15 hours is not unreasonable before allowing someone to go armed outside
If everyone who got a license without training would come here and spend hours a day
reading scenarios and discussions, then yes--- no training needed. But we see it all the time, the guy
with a license who hasn't a clue what the law on use of deadly force is within his own state.
That is can be fixed with minimum training requirements.
I like the old style- Hunter Safety courses too. I recall taking one when I was about 14, which was a very
long long time ago. Got it done at Boy Scout camp. I don't hunt, but there are a few things
I learned that still are valuable pieces of knowledge.
I don't much care what system we use, and if one state wants a private system and another a DPS
administered system, and third one self-training with a supervised written test, that's fine with me.
If the gun industry wants to develop some sort of "C-card" program that would be fine with me too.
But I do continue to feel strongly that the training is very much for ones own protection, just as with
the C-card; you don't want to be the one that drowns. With gun training, it is also for your protection.
You don't want to be the one in legal hot water for something you could have been warned about.
