And parenting.I'm of two minds about that. On one hand you are correct, the right to self defense shouldn't be conditional on getting what amounts to a permission slip from the government. At the same time however, there are people out there who have absolutely no clue how to safely handle the gun they're carrying, let alone shoot it accurately under stress. I wish there was a way to weed out the idiots who make us all look bad while not making it hard for the rest of us. Of course I could apply the exact same analogy to driving.
