It would literally be impossible...

...for me to agree with this post more than I already do.

I've been carrying a pistol for most of my adult life. I have lived in three states during that time, one of which had a mandatory training class and qualification course (TN) and two which did not (GA and IN). I have not observed any noticeable difference in the quality of shooting ability, legal knowledge, or safe gun handling among the populations of the three states.

Arguing that there will be blood in the streets if there is no mandatory training is not one bit different, philosophically speaking, than those who say there will be shootouts over parking spaces if we let people carry guns at all. The "blood in the streets" keeps un-happening.
