More food for thought. In a timely coincidence, I recently bought Mas Ayoob's "In the Gravest Extreme" and started reading it last week. In the Introduction he notes:
"It is my personal opinion that every applicant for a carry permit should pass a written examination on self-defense and lethal force laws, and a close range qualification run over a combat pistol shooting course....Some gun owners may consider this a suggested abrogation of their Constitutional rights. On the contrary, it is the failure to institute such controls that may eventually terminate the privilege of carrying concealed weapons for personal safety."
Ayoob, is hardly the last word on the subject ,but he is both a fierce advocate of 2A rights and a respected firearms trainer. "In the Gravest Extreme" was written 28 years ago; I wonder if he has changed his mind on this point? Does anyone know?
