Hi all,

I started this thread because I made a post in a different section referring to a debate I had about this subject on THR (The High Road) forums. Below is the post with a link to the THR thread and associated and disclaimer. :lol:

Feel free to comment , even if you disagree with me ... really! :lol: :p

Ok, I have not gone back to re-read my post so I want to apologize if I come across as "condescending". I really try not to be but sometimes it sounds like it. However, I promptly PM'd folks to make sure that they knew that this was not my intent.

OK, qualifications aside ... below is the thread. I am linking directly to the page where I start the debate (scroll down towards the bottom) as the thread was originally about something else (weird topic). Thread was hi-jacked so I took the blame and apologized. Enough already, here goes ... ... ge=5&pp=25

No, there should not be increased training requirements for a CCW.

Proper training in gun handling is always a good idea, however the training requirements should be the same as those for handling an unconcealed weapon - which is what it is likely to be once you go to use it.

State approval should not be required to own or shoot a firearm.

Folks have a right to defend themselves and to bear the responsibilty for their actions. So, it is certainly in their best interests to learn how to use their tools effectively but it should not be a requirement dependent on state approval.
