Indiana doesn't require any training and we don't have a problem with people shooting feet off or toes for that matter. Training is good if you own a firearm, but there are a lot of people here that was raise around guns and know how to use them.
In states that require training I bet they still have their fair share of dummies and idiots that get into trouble even they took the state required course.
Carrying is an individual right, open or concealed, plain a simple! "the peoples right to keep and "bear" arms shall not be infringed". It says nothing about open or concealed.
And to let everyone know, I always carry concealed, but I do have a choice.
