Tom Givens of Memphis-based Rangemaster is the only DPS-approved trainer north of Jackson so far. He welcomed the new training incentive for Mississippi firearms owners.

"From a constitutionalist's point of view, you have a right to carry a gun, period," he said. "But it's foolish to carry without training. It's like driving a car without training."
No, it's not like driving a car without training. People can carry a gun for years and never use it. Some cops carry a gun for twenty years and never use it. Using a gun is so easy, a 12 year old kid can do it. Five year olds have shot their siblings.

When people own cars, they drive them everyday and sometimes in heavy traffic at high speeds.

I think gun safety training is not a waste of time, and some gun owners do need some formal training.
