    if that is the one that bob's gun shop in norfolk promotes, yes it is legit. a buddy of mine took that class and got his permit. He had no time for a class and shoots quite often anyway.

    What does proficiency have to do with it?

    It's all about having permission to exercise a right.

    I agree Grapshot. But in a perfect world children would be taught handling and safety of firearms by their family as they were growing up.

    Someone who has never handled a firearm should have some hands on instruction. whether from a friend, family member, or instructor for safety.

    I understand you full well. Capability, ability and training in manual of arms are all desirable. They are not required though for a CHP (nor do I think they should be) and that is the suggestion that appears to be made with "If you are proficient".

    Are we going to have this same, old, tired argument yet again, where we all really agree on the underlying principles, but we have to beat our chests over semantics and see who can win the ******* contest?

    It really gets old after the 476th time, especially since we've all seen that it never advances the discussion.

    Grapeshot Iagree. Probably shouldn't answer when tired. This is closer to what I intended it to mean.

    In a reasonable world, ALL schools would be required to teach children certain life skills at age-appropriate times to ensure their safety. These would include

    1. Basic first aid

    2. Fire and electrical safety

    3. Water safety and basic swimming instruction

    4. Basic sex education/STD education

    5. Basic firearm safety

    6. Poison control

    All these can be taught without any political/moral bias, and should be presented as the public's obligation to keep our young ones safe, with the hopes they will stay safe as adults.



    Liberals will need to be taught that little Johnnie is no more likely to become a gun-wielding thug if taught about basic firearm safety than he is to become an Olympic swimmer just because he is taught to stay alive if he falls in a lake.

    Liberal illogic would be the biggest stumbling block to providing a full range of education to our children. Sad but true.

    I agree with your list, Dutch, but perhaps a more appropriate analogy would be that little Johnnie is no more likely to become an arsonist if taught about fire and electrical safety, or to become a rapist because he learned about sex ed/STDs.
    A law-abiding citizen should be able to carry his personal protection firearm anywhere that an armed criminal might go.

    Very well-put, Dutch. I wish my children had been taught this in school. If you involve your children in Scouting, they CAN get the training listed above without any political/moral bias. All these subjects (except sex ED and STD's) are taught to scouts before puberty.

    Sorry this is OT.

    Can't depend on schools to give them the education they will need to grow up as responsible, moral adults. That is where we as parents must step up and do the job.

    It has been my decided conclusion that the children (many of whom I have had the pleasure of meeting) of fellow posters here, are being well educated in the values and skills that will enable them to be responsible adults.

    Thank you all for caring enough to give them the very best. They are indeed our future, our legacy.

    Back on thread - No I do not know anyone that has utilized on-line training but I have no problem with it for meeting minimum required standards. It is legal by state code. It provides a beginning to a life long journey for some and that is good.
