This is a very heated and long thread on a local forum that I am a member of.
A member there posted the question:
"Do you think more extensive training shouldbe mandated by the state in order to legally carry a concealed handgun?"
This thread has taken a life of its own and there are a few that commented that "additional training should be mandatory in order for people to carry a concealed handgun".
Basically, they are advocating that citizens should be mandated by the state to pay for additional training courses before they are allowed to carry a hidden handgun. They say the current standards are lousy, which may be correct, but that people are idiots until they are further trained and are not capable of properly defending themselves with a handgun.
What say you?
