At the end of the day, you may be right. But, based upon the information in that news story, there is not enough information to make accusations about the quality and level of instruction.
It doesn't really matter, as a NRA instructor you are taught/or should have been taught to treat all CCW students as beginners. The course is a basic on the pistol, the laws of the state and SAFETY.

Default Without knowing the full story

The link didn't work. I my self am a less than expirenced pistol shooter (I will be posting a question later), but I know this about semiautomatic pistols, squeeze the trigger gun goes bang. CAR is right basic fundementals for CGL, he wasn't qualifying for the pistol for police duty, and if he was then needed more practice. It's tuff and tragedy, people get killed or hurt all the time by guns they can't handle. Weak hand, one hand it is possible this could have been avoided if it was noticed that stong hand supported was a struggle.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
