As I have written in other places the state will shoot itself in the foot it it tries to punish us for Bruen - why do you think they responded so quickly and without legal prompting?Yeah, if anything they will increase the training requirements just to punish us for winning. It always gets back to the fact that it isn’t really about gun control, but about controlling the people who want to take their selfdefense into their own hands and not be dependent on the government for it. If you can defend yourself, the government looses a great deal of control over you.
They know the house of cards is shaking and they don't want to have any light shining down right now.
The state is on record stating that the current licensing scheme makes Massachusetts safer than other states - that scheme includes the current prescription for a specific type of training.
In order to increase the requirement they would need to provide overwhelming evidence that they were in error with their claim and show how increasing requirements would be narrowly tailored to an objective increase in public gun safety - that's not going to happen since ND accidents are simply not an issue here.
