I guess I didn’t fully explain myself. I don’t like people having guns and not training to use them. I do think people should be allowed to have guns. If it wasn’t such a pita to own one here I’d have my own handgun.
If you have a club convenient to you it’s not that bad to get into target shooting. You can get setup reasonably easily, it was just a weekend course to get both NR / R in one shot.
