Who said anything about the government? My employer pays for the education. I love it when someone who abandons their family for a gun assumes, thats just stupidity.I love it when someone says they get something "free" from the government, tells me they don't understand how it works.
No doubt the numbers work for you, different people place different values on government abuse, because we are talking abuse, not following the law. The law says no training requirement. The abuse is requiring that and having other additional conditions.
Now I understand why some authorities want a mental health evaluation and why you had to move to own a gun.
