Too much or not enough training required?
I know a lot of guys that think it's bunk that any training at all is required to obtain a carry permit. I happen to disagree, and think that Michigans' 8 hour requirement is really a bare minimum. I also see where more would become too expensive for many. I guess I'm wondering what other states require and how you feel about it.
I've also heard of proposed legislation here that would allow Military Veterans to skip the required training, and I have to disagree with that too. Yeah, I learned how to shoot an M16 and a beretta. I learned nothing about civilian use of force laws. So, one day my car alarm went off and I took my gun out to shoot the SOB stealing my car. Good thing there was noone out there, 'cause I was 18, and completely ignorant that I was gonna have a bad 10-20 years. All I knew is the the good 'ol boys always talked about putting someone down if they tried to take their car or whatever, so I figured I would too. Glad I'm still here to alk about with you guys, instead of my cellmate. Assuming my cellmate wouldn't mind the pillow talk.
