Gun bill to allow "constitutional carry" passes GOP-led committee:
“If you’re legally eligible to possess a firearm, you should be able to carry that weapon concealed for self-defense without begging for government’s permission,” said Sen. Tim Neville, R-Littleton, the bill’s sponsor. He called it “common-sense legislation.”
Mary Parker of Ken Caryl, who has a concealed-carry permit, opposed the bill. She said there’s not enough training required now to carry a gun, and allowing untrained people to walk around armed won’t end well.
I've been training people for six years now, and I've never rejected anyone from my "INTRODUCTION TO USPSA" class FOR THE SOLE REASON THAT they are a total incompetent.
That's why I'm there; to teach the "incompetents" to become competent.
Having said that, I admit that I've passed too many "Total Incompetents" through the training regimen. Usually, they're just unfamiliar with the concept of "drawing from a holster" and it's obvious that they will improve with experience... so we treat that First Match as a "Training Experience" and allow them to continue.
If they're "irredeemably totally incompetent", they usually figure it out for themselves and they don't show up for the monthly matches (unless they have elicited some private/personal training; not a common thing.)
OTHER THAN THAT:
I've said it before, I'll say it again, here and now:
SOME PEOPLE SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO HANDLE A GUN!
