As a CCW holder myself I actually like having a training requirement for conceal carry. I don’t want anyone tarnishing the image of responsible gun owners with an accidental discharge in public. I could just see someone carrying Miami vice style and blowing a kids head off on accident because they don’t follow the 10 commandments of gun safety.
That said it should be mandatory issue for all qualified applicants provided training has been completed.
Totally agree with the last and see the potential benefits of the first. Even "seasoned pros" who carry firearms daily tend to screw up and causing
That said, only a fool will carry a weapon which he has not fired and become familiar with (or at least had experience with similar weapons). I have a couple that I've only fired a dozen or so rounds through to sight them in, but have a lot of experience with every type of weapon I own. I used to be able to fire in my backyard, but we were incorporated and it's no longer allowed so I have to keep up my range membership. I heard of one that sells access by the hour - it might serve the purpose and save a few bucks.
Agree with you guys completely on the training requirement. I have permits in three states and the training in every instance was very good. In fact, in Nevada I also completed an advanced combat handgun course because the CCW class was so good.
It was interesting seeing the cross section of participants in the carry class...one lady asked exactly what a revolver was, (she had one).
The classes all spent a good amount of time explaining the legal aspects associated with conceal carry and the huge responsibility one takes when carrying a weapon. In two different states the instructors emphasized that every bullet that comes out of a weapon in a self defence situation has a lawyer attached to it.
These types of classes should be mandatory.
Please show me the “training requirement clause” in the 2A. Why not also apply this rule to the 1A? After all, some people may have a tendency to yell “fire” when there is none.
Cannot believe I am reading this on a site supposedly devoted to the Constitution!
I think mandatory issue is a pretty constitutional friendly stance. The liability of allowing someone to carry a weapon who has never even fired one is a scary thought. CCW classes improve the effectiveness of a carrier by introducing them to concepts and laws they need to be aware of. You also need to be aware of laws in other states if you choose to carry elsewhere. The list is very long, take a class if you don’t believe me.
Also, CCW is issued by the local Sheriff’s department. In my county the Sheriff is extremely pro 2A and encourages people to get their CCW. The letter he sends after you receive the permit is very sobering in terms of your new responsibility to carry in public.
I think you are barking up the wrong tree suggesting these measures are unconstitutional. If the law were may issue rather than shall issue then we’d have a serious problem. Some states actually have a may issue policy which I am staunchly against.
You are nuts and a perfect example why we are being overwhelmed with attempts to impose more and more regulations and laws restricting gun use.
I do NOT want just any person carrying a gun who has no training and does not regularly practice. That probably includes you as you do seem clueless.
Apply to the 1A indeed...you obviously are not aware of the restriction to “yelling fire when there is none”. Grow up.
