Okay I’m just not going to debate over agreeing. I already linked. There are places where we agree in principle but at depart different points along the spectrum of risk.

Yeah your training level for CCW actually exceeded what a cop trainer friend said LAPD does. So yeah that was a tad excessive. .

Except cops train continually on the job too. There’s very few places where CCWs have that requirement.

But we do agree that extensive training is the need. I think training for home defense or CCW should scale to about what gun training police get. Not SWAT, detectives and beat cops. now that sport I mentioned? That is how they can improve on that level.

Home defense and CCW are entirely different scenarios. And again: The point was that those people don’t need the gun. Getting real good at shooting the gun they don’t need for self-defense doesn’t make it more legitimate for self defense.

Was your level of training you called for a deliberate discouragement? That’s not what training is for

Why the fuck would you ask a question like that? That’s like, basically “Are you being dishonest and underhanded?”

No, the purpose is not deliberate discouragement. it’s based on this crazy fucking idea that people with guns, especially those allowed to just carry them around wherever the fuck they go, should be trained well enough so that they can actually respond and use them will in crisis situations.

This is the reasoning I have always expressed, so can you tell me where you got the idea to accuse me of deliberate discouragement?
