Yes, training is beneficial. Yes people should be able to get training - voluntarily. But to limit their ability to defend themselves based upon a government instituted standard of proficiency is simply not included in the 2nd Amendment that I read and believe in.

I don't know if training or a permit would have saved a single one of them but I doubt that it would have resulted in more. I sropped at around a dozen as it was too depressing.
