Gun Control

SheepdogsI think we've all seen the slogan, "Gun control is using both hands." It's true enough, but a recent Groupon e-mail got me thinking. The deal of the day was a "concealed carry" class and it highlighted that no range time was required. It surprised me, and then I remembered. That's the norm. Classroom time, not proficiency. In other words, it has the hallmarks of a compromise with liberals, with striking similarities to public education.

What does it mean that a right shall not be infringed? According to my friends at reference.com, to infringe is to weaken, to break, to trespass upon, to violate.

All of the above has already happened, of course. So why don't we have a proficiency requirement for concealed carry? General ownership is another matter entirely, but shouldn't someone who wants to carry concealed be able to hit center mass at, say, 15 yards?

I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on this. Remember, just email me if you don't already have a login. CAT at THEWATCHCAT dot NET
