I do agree there should be requirements for people to acquire at least the basics of training to carry a firearm.

I do also, but it pisses me off that I have to go take the exact same inadequate course here in Tenn. that I took in Maine just last year. It is the same NRA basic course. To a lifelong gun owner that was grandfathered in Maine, it is an insult. I took it with my wife in case you are wondering why and it gave me the piece of paper to take with me. But they want their $200 here so they don't accept the same course taught by a retired trooper because I have to take it from their retired trooper. On the other hand, I can walk into the right place in Georgia and for a fee, they will just give me one.
We need a national permit system. AND there needs to be hands on training and more legal training.
Allowing restrictions for advanced training just lets the idiots that don't believe in them at all (HC) make it to difficult to have one at all. Moderation not knee jerk reaction. NON of this would have stopped this recent idiot anyways.
I don't think they should be federal laws for CCW . But we do need a better reprocity system, like a drivers license is. Rules for your state apply where ever you are.

There is reciprocity here Flyer5. But I had 3 months to spend $200 bucks and sit in another 8 hour ultra boring class with some guy saying ,This is a gun, This is a cartridge, this is revolver, etc.

LOL! I understand.
