Devils advocate on this. You do not need a license to drive, you need a learners permit. Then, under supervision, you can drive on the roads. Yes, it is supervised, but, ultimately the “untrained” person is the one in control of a 2 ton implement of potential death. I agree, that more people should seek at least a minimum of professional training, but, we don’t license any other rights.
In Illinois, if you were born after 1-1-1980, you are required to take a hunters safety course to get a hunting license. All classroom, no shooting proficiency. Upon completion, you can legally, openly carry a far more powerful weapon than a pistol during the respective hunting season. If born before 12-31-1979, no safety course required. Just buy your license, tags, and hunting gear, then into the woods with a 12 gauge you go. I’ve seen cows shot as “big deer” by Chicago hunters.
