Dark knight.

I don't doubt that the training exists and is available, but what is the percentage of the average gun-owner that attends those courses? Less than 2%??

IME, the average John Doe simply wants his gun and very little besides the compulsory training & requirement.

I got 2 advanced drivers licences for both Bike and Car, I know that I am among a few percent of people that ever attended those courses. Even though they are offered freely and are not even expensive.

It is all nice and good to say that the courses are there, but they won't benefit the people that don't know about them or don't attend them.

Not trying to be funny here.
