POLL: Do You Support Government Mandated Training to Carry a Gun in Public?
This issue comes up a lot and we want to know what our readers think about this issue.
Do you support government mandated training before someone should be allowed to carry a firearm in public?
Please keep in mind that we are talking about government mandated training, not formalized training. I would hope that everyone is in favor of voluntary, formalized training, because, let’s be honest, you can never have enough training.
Feel free to sound off in the comments and elaborate on your answer. If you support mandatory training, do you think it should be a simple safety course, or in-depth self defense course? Who should pay for the class? Who will set the minimum training standards?
This isn’t a “gotcha” question, we’re looking for real answers here.
