Gun control advocates constantly slate the average American’s ability to defend themselves with a firearm. No surprise there. If you agree that people need training to safely carry a firearm, the state should regulate it (out of existence)! Some gun rights advocates bolster this argument by agreeing that everyone should have training. It just shouldn’t be mandatory. I reckon that hair-splitting argument befuddles gun muggles. The better approach: promote the idea that defending yourself with a gun is a no-brainer. Bullets face forward, point gun at bad guy, pull trigger if needed. All the operator operating operationally misegos – situational awareness, getting off the X, etc. – is Inside Baseball, best left out when discussing gun rights. Am I wrong?
