No no, that's not my intent whatsoever. I agree that gun crime committed by CHW/CHL owners is probably insignificant. I am not talking about that at all. I want more people armed in day to day life and I recognize that it would be better if we made sure those people were properly trained and able to handle situations like Sandy Hook or Aurora. Even if the training is such that it tells them NOT to do anything in certain situations.
My intention with this point is not to lower the rate of gun crime directly through training or any such nonsense, my intention is to make sure that WHEN it happens their are adequately prepared, armed citizens ready to intervene.
