What is so hard about the sentence and concept of a RIGHT that SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED?? Not shall not be infringed until somebody thinks it should be for whatever reason.
You dont have to believe a train is coming. Itll run over you anyway.

NH doesn't even require a course. Yes that means no course online or in person is required. Yet NH has no issues with CCL holders doing anything stupid. Although I potentially support a test out of a course/having to take a course as I don't believe every one has the experience or understanding to get their CCL. My state stats for weekly applications have jumped from 30-70 a week sense the CT shooting. But again NH hasn't had a problem with anyone who is a CCL holder so all in all it is fine that we don't have a course.
My favorite public range story is this gun next to me (mid 40's) aims and fires. Drops the gun because somehow he managed to take hold of the slide so when he fired he took a big chunk out of his hand. I think to myself I hope he is not a fellow CCL holder. Needless to say I shoot in the middle of the woods by myself now.

"But online training isn't the only issue with "shall issue". "We don't want the mentally ill and the people with criminal records carrying the weapons out in public," Pulkrabek [Johnson County Sheriff] said."
Am I missing something here? Don't these applicants go through the same background checks that all applicants around the country do? We don't need sheriffs to have discretion. If there is a problem it will be found during the background check.

Exactly. Plus, they can deny with probable cause that they are wiling to articulate in writing. That can be appealed.

Because a "right" differs from a privilege.

Our sheriff here in Plymouth county doesn't care for online courses. At all. He prefers an actual class. The friends of mine that offer classes invited him to sit in on a class, and offer criticism. He had none.
As I had held permits in Montana and Wyoming, I would not have needed to take a class. But I did not know that at the time. It worked out well. I was new to Iowa, brand new to the town. Met a lot of my kind of folks. A couple years later, I still shoot with those guys all the time.
But I hear what you are saying. We don't need people telling us how things will be. Control thing.
