Instructors said the training requirement does not infringe on our constitutional rights and without the training requirement, the gun owner could hurt themselves and/or hurt others.
“You might as well not carry it at all if you don’t know how to use it correctly,” said Maxfield.
It has to be an equal mix of greed and stupidity that launches the mouths of some firearm instructors to blab about government-mandated training. If by now, any Gun Owner does not realize that regulations that come from political hacks have no basis in real life and are actually a gateway to restrictions, simply in a disconnected idiot.
Should Gun Owners get training? Yes. If you are an instructor offer affordable classes in different levels of guncraft, from basic pistol handling to weapons retention. But do not latch yourself to legislators in order to keep your gravy train running. The Four Rules of Gun Safety were not designed by a Washington Think Tank under orders of Congress and after spending millions of dollars in “research.” It was a cranky old SOB who came up with them and have served us very well. The same goes for basically all firearms training: Individuals coming up with the best way to shoot and be safe using only their own money and time.
Stop The Fudd.
