“Cutting Ohio’s 12-hour CCW classes is bad”

Proposed legislation to cut (or even eliminate!) Ohio’s current mandatory minimum 12-hour training for Concealed Carry Weapon classes and licenses is not a good Second Amendment cause for us gun lovers or others. I paid for and have mine and did not whine. Anybody who cannot take the time (with the attention and effort) to pass such a short easy 12-hour CCW class should not be carrying a concealed firearm. Efforts to cut the content and hours of these mandatory minimum CCW classes are not worthy of my energy, money, time or whines. Leave it alone, folks!
CCW does not apply inside the castle, house or motor vehicle; but when you shoot outside the car/castle it is going to be a hassle. I had rather have people with brains be properly taught and trained to restrain by qualified NRA instructors, instead of by their kin, friends, gun buddies, and barroom and coffee-counter consultants; who will only hurt you if and after they are called upon to testify in your behalf as CCW experts. Likewise, target shooting in the back yard or in the field or at the range or in the military or in combat does not apply; nor does a CCW license qualify someone to become a cop, CIA agent, lawyer, or SWAT or Delta Force member.
Most CCW students do not know what they are talking about, making dumb and dangerous assumptions, according to what they hear, read and see on the net and on TV. NRA CCW and firearms instructors answer their questions and try to straighten them out…if they are able and willing to listen and learn. I do not see why sensible gun people get upset or cannot seem to comprehend this. It's only twelve damned hours! Why are some dumber gun nuts crazy about this? Only a real dangerous dumbass could not pass such a short easy 12-hour CCW class.
If and after current 12-hour Ohio CCW classes are cut (or eliminated!), it will soon be scary and PROVEN necessary when mistakes are made and people boohoo and get arrested, pestered, prosecuted, sentenced and sued. Ignorance of the law will be no excuse, just because they didn't know who, what, where, when, why and how to safely and legally shoot; even if and after (instead of CCW studies) they listened to and learned from their kin, friends and buddies; or learned some dumb tough stuff from the Internet with later regrets. It is our gun-community duty not to spread stupid if only because this is not a good Second Amendment cause.

Folks, if we do not regulate ourselves, we will be regulated by somebody else [reenactor saying of mine]. Is anything worse than an innocent untrained woman with a gun in her purse? Especially a man-hating one who cannot wait to use her new gun, on the first loudmouthed lout who calls her "baby" maybe and shouts. Or some obnoxious kids who pester people with their mouths. Or drunks and drug addicts and punks who maybe act mean and crazy maybe.

This is why Ohio's current mandatory minimum 12-hour requirement for Concealed Carry Weapon classes and licenses is a good idea. At this time, I do not know if the accused Dearborn defendant has a valid Michigan CCW license or took any firearms or related training. True, a Concealed Carry license is not needed or required for self defense inside the castle or car; but if you shoot outside the castle [through an open door toward a person on a patio or porch] it is going to be a hassle. You will be prosecuted and sued and probably lose a lot, guilty or not.

Quit sharing and spreading your Guns & Ammo and other gun magazines, to preach and teach to the choir! For a couple of years, I left my read gun magazines at target ranges and at gun shops and at gun shows and at gun stores. No more! For a couple of months, I have been leaving my gun magazines inside waiting rooms, at doctors offices, dentists, hair salons and in the magazine racks at my public library. I am discreet and not obnoxious or obvious about this, not wanting to offend anyone about guns or make them pissed. These magazines are free! And non-shooters may choose to enjoy reading and learning some gun things instead of some dishonest dumb things.
