I'll have to respectfully disagree.
I have to respectfully disagree with your respectful disagreement.
I dont think it is posible to have a common sense approach to gun laws because certain people will use those common sense laws against us.
requiring a class on gun safety would be a fine idea until a political party makes the test so expensive and so hard that most people would get turned down.
There's nothing wrong IMHO of common sense gun laws like instant background checks and , ,well thats the only one I can think of.
There is more than enough legislation, child safety warnings, OSHA regulations, etc.
Certain legislation,child safety warnings and most definitly OSHA has arguable saved more lives than the right to bear arms has.
Legislation is a good thing if used correctly but we have to live in an environment where we fear any gun control law as just another step to take away our right to bear arms.
So I think a manatory gun safety class would be a good idea but we could never implement it in a way that would be satisfactory to anyone.
My kids have a mandatory gun safety class mandated and taught by me over and over again on a regular basis. Thats the first step.
