The test I could go along with but I don't want to pay for training I don't need every time I buy a gun if I've already passed the test.
A lot of people were killed or hurt. So much for "Gun Control" it doesn't work and can get you killed. France doesn't allow you to carry so there was nobody to fight back. If you need to wait for the police the bad guys won't stop killing until they get there.
What we might need is a law that requires X hours of training, the cost of which is included in the purchase price of the gun and at could include a written test and a performance test.
The level of naivete displayed by such a statement is truly discouraging
They just can't get it in their head that the rules and banning of guns only hurt the GOOD GUYS and mean NOTHING to the bad guys. This country was build on GUNS and HORSES like it or not. It's the GUNS that won our Freedoms of today. We still worship horses to this day. The USA is the only country that will not eat Horse meat. Our 2016 cars are still rated in HORSEPOWER along with many other power plants. In the old days you could be shot for stealing horses, they worked the farms . They lead our troops into battle with their GUNS. Never, ever , give up your guns, or horses if you got them.
The BLM fiasco as it escalates so will the sale of personal protection weapons, ammo and CCL applicants. I see this at my local gun shop and people I work with all agree this movement if it continues as is will soon cause a lot of civil unrest and I for one would hate to be out in that environment unarmed.
smithmanmodel10 - Thanks for the insight on the percentage of women in your classes - it's very helpful, even if anecdotal.
Sometimes I lament the fact that there are so few posts on this board, since I own a few shares of SWHC
But then this kind of post shows up, with nothing to do with the stock prospects.
Also, are there really folks such as yourself who think that it is possible for us to "get all the guns turned in"?
The level of naivete displayed by such a statement is truly discouraging.
All - I am a certified NRA pistol instructor and my business partner and I teach classes for those who want to apply for a concealed carry permit.
Currently our classes vary from about 25 to 50% women. This is an increase but men still usually outnumber women.
Given the amount of b/s thrown here by those who try to pump or bash the stock, as well as highly biased ideological b/s, liberal and conservative alike, it’s prudent to ask for sources and check facts .... unless one prefers to be ignorant and biased
retp3fe - Not only do you chubbsyubbsey have similar beliefs, but also you're able to answer a question to which only he knows the answer for certain, hahaha
You can not deny that more and more women are becoming interested in guns, for shooting sports, rec. shooting, defense, what ever. Weather they buy a gun or hubby/friend/ other buys a gun is moot. Fact is their interest is and will continue to drive gun sales.
