I feel that especially with hand guns a mandatory course that presents the laws in detail when the use of “Deadly Force” is authorized based on the laws of a particular state. NOT A LICENSE, an “education”. Perhaps even a course in proficiency. If you can’t hit anything with it, why buy it? Some states have a “Castle Law”, some don’t. The right to protect oneself is “endowed by the Creator”. That’s the only “license” required. My state has probably the MOST intensive investigation process to obtain a CCP/handgun permit. It takes MONTHS for approval/disapproval to happen. Your background had better be squeeky clean or you don’t get one. Even then you are subject to a “review” every five years. Some feel that is “to intrusive”. Perhaps. But it weeds out elements that have neither the character nor the “responsibility factor” to possess a handgun. Does it stop crime with a handgun? Of course not. But it does set a STIFF penalty if you are caught with an illegal handgun. HARD TIME! If used in a crime, HARDER TIME!
