In Oregon, our supreme court just affirmed that county sheriffs canNOT deny CHL's (in this Shall-Issue state) to registered medical marijuana users. Some might think confirmed drug-users shouldn't be allowed to carry. However, every judicial decision allowing greater access to handguns by citizens makes us all safer, even if a few individual users are less than prepared.

I've only been acquainted with firearms for a little more than a year. My heart still races with adrenaline when I am training at a range with 10 lanes of .45s, .40s, and shotguns being fired around me. I'm sure I have shaken before. Firing guns is an extremely American activity, but not exactly natural for many of us.

Every citizen that is allowed to carry legally (and follows all the rules to garner that privilege) helps protect our freedom in the bigger picture!

I'm more scarred of the unshaven old guy in the corner who gets a bulls eye with every shot and a grin on his face.

Just a couple bug guns.

There should be a prerequisite class for untrained gun owners that affords time for them to get familiar with firearms and comfortable with their use. I think a two week class with plenty of range time is necessary!!
I wholeheartedly disagree. Training is a personal responsibility and should be initiated and taken very seriously on one's own... But it shouldn't be a government requirement nor should one be required to pay a tax for a permission slip to exercise one's natural rights.

In Alaska, Arizona, and Vermont, there is no requirement for permits for the carriage of arms, both openly or concealed. The way the whole nation should be...
