@Sidecarr9 I’m going to guess that you were referring to that article by Rick Sapp.
While I won’t get into the religious aspect of the conversation that’s gone on here, I will say that I firmly believe people should be educated and trained when they carry a gun. And (sorry veterans) I agree with Rick Sapp in the aspect that the military isn’t necessarily all the training you will need to be a responsibly armed civilian American.
Please note - no where in that did I say training should be mandatory or what type of training it should be. I don’t think mandatory training has the effect that training pursued by those who want to be trained. I know I sat through a geometry class in high school - because I had to - and I don’t remember much of it. But I wanted to sit through a 20 hour 2-day class given by Massad Ayoob and I have a couple of spiral notebooks full of notes from those two days.
We should want to be trained to carry a firearm so we don’t hurt anyone else trying to defend ourselves.
