Why force them to do something that they won't need.
So why have any training requirements at all? Using your logic why teach someone how to holster the gun when they won't use a holster? Why teach someone how to use a semi-auto if they are only going to use an revolver? Why teach them about prohibited places if they don't plan to carry beyond their front yard? Why have more then the 5-10 minutes of range time it would take me to qualify on the B27 target? And the list could go on and on...
Fact is if a course is going to be worth it's weight it should have a curriculum that covers as MANY of the possibly subjects as it can, especially subject and actions that are a requirement of the law to be in compliance, that is unless the students are pre-screened and divided into unique and specific classes based on their requirements...
I believe the Chicago contingent of the House would agree with you. They were the ones advocating 40 hours minimum. No one would graduate from the course under your approach because they cannot learn everything.
Your approach to mandated training is completely in line with current Democratic Party politics. I'm more of a "libertarian" when it comes to mandated training. I'm all for more training, but I don't want to government to force me teach a specific curriculum. I do t think we're arguing the same argument.
I am talking about the government mandated training minimum requirements for CCW. You are talking about "general" training.
