I know this can be somewhat of a touchy subject. Many think our constitution itself gives us the right to carry concealed, but for now we are forced to follow the interpretation, and I use the word loosly, of our government.My question is since we are required to be licensed in most cases do you think there should be proficency testing. Again you will find a wide range of opinions on this but I have to speak in favor of such testing. In my state the CCW test is a 10 question open book test dealing with the law and a proficency test that consists of 10 shots anywhere in the scoring rings, with one reload) from 7 yards with pretty much any handgun you choose. In my case the instructor had us qualify with a ruger MKII. A blind man could (and actually did)pass this test. It bothers me cause some of the yahoos barely kept all 10 shot on target. The problem I see is that I might be standing beside "John Wayne" when he draws on a BG robbing the 7/11 and shoots himself or ME in the foot because he has little or no training and/or experience with his weapon. I also have to wonder if there wouldn't be a liability issue for the state if no training is required. Even requiring a firearm safety course which most shooters probably have already taken would be better than nothing. While everyone should have the right to carry I'm not sure all are qualified to. Having a gun if you can't or won't us it is often worse than not having one at all.
