A question to Student 4 conceal and carry....<quoted text>
COMMON ARGUMENT: Police officers typically spend four to five months in training; whereas, concealed handgun license holders usually spend one day or less.
Police officers do not spend four to five months learning to carry concealed handguns for self-defense; they spend four to five months learning to be police officers. Concealed handgun license holders are not police officers; therefore, they have no need of most of the training received by police officers. Concealed handgun license holders dont need to know how to drive police cars at high speeds or how to kick down doors or how to conduct traffic stops or how to make arrests or how to use handcuffs. And concealed handgun license holders definitely dont need to spend weeks memorizing radio codes and traffic laws.
Contrary to what some opponents of concealed carry might claim, concealed handgun license holders dont need extensive tactical training because they are not charged with protecting the publicIts not their job to act like amateur, one-man SWAT teams. All a concealed handgun license holder needs to know is how to use his or her concealed handgun to stop an immediate threat of death or serious bodily harm, and that type of training CAN be accomplished in a few hours.
NOTE: In some states, such as Texas, the shooting test for a concealed handgun license differs very little from the annual re-qualification test for police officers.
In the event that your teacher did have the few hours training required; and in the event that your teacher did have to protect students by using the firearm, what possibility is there of victims of "friendly fire?" Could that happen here?
And how many hours of training does a teacher have in learning how to deal with the fallout of such horrible possibilities?
