I attended a concealed carry class. I was surprised how many amatuer shooters were there. One lady says " I've never even shot a gun". Two other guys ask "can we rent guns... we don't have any".
I ask myself... should the standards be raised?
I have been shooting since I was 6 years old and pistols since I was 18 years old. I feel confident in being able to control a weapon. Should people be required to attend training before licensed? I could have qualified with my eyes closed... the target is huge.
