It's official: we just disagree on the degree of improved gun control.
No, not on gun OWNERSHIP. But I do think we can and should get better training/certification standards for CARRY laws.
So in summary of my feelings:
1)ANYONE barring violent felons and mentally disabled can OWN guns after passing background check, etc
2)IF you want to carry in public(this gets tricky because I actually have a fairly developed more complex plan for this, but here is the simple version) than you need to be certified as properly trained to do so and possibly even pass a yearly continuing ed style review.
BUT I think this has to be done at a local level, no chance I would be ok with a federal system for ANY of this. And that IS a point I would shoot someone over.
