Following up on a comment yesterday, it occurred to me that our opponents repeatedly suggest that civilians should not be allowed to carry firearms for self-defense, a key reason being that civilians don’t receive sufficient training compared to police. But then when we seek out the same kind of training as police, they disapprovingly exclaim, “Who needs â€˜tactical firearm trainingâ€™?”
So which is it? Do you want civilian gun carriers to be better trained? Or do you just hate the idea of people with guns. If the latter, just admit it and drop the charade of caring about gun violence, or wanting to reduce accidents. You know what reduces accidents? Training and education.
