This thread is to only discuss the following topics (The 2nd Amendment Rights as they pertain to CCW and general laws) PLEASE keep this thread on this topic!!!!!
I don't believe the 2A says anything even remotely like " The government can force you to pass a training course they design in order to defend yourself and your loved ones with a firearm." In fact, forcing people to meet criteria and then pay a recurring fee is not something you should have to do to exercise a constitutional right. That's paying the government for a privilege.I got my first and (only) concealed carry permit in Texas in 2015 at that time it was concealed carry only, on January 1st 2016 they passed the law that you can open carry only with a concealed carry permit which meant training was required. SMART!!
Of Course I was living in Kentucky officially as of 01/04/2016 which is a constitutional carry state which basically means anyone allowed by law even idiots can by a gun and a holster and open/conceal carry without any training whatsoever. STUPID.
Ok don’t get me wrong I believe in the right to keep and bear arms and will push/fight for the continuation of the those right but I do believe that training is paramount for that safe polite society.
Like I said, Draconian.
