    Welcome to the forum.

    I have a question about your above statement. How do you propose someone prove they "...can handle the responsibly."? They may prove gun handling skills, but that doesn't speak to some standard of handling the responsibility of carrying a firearm. Could you clarify your intent?

    Certaintly! I feel that if you feel the need to carry a firearm either concealed or open there should be no problem with going through the same process that the men and women go through every day to carry as a requirement for their careers. The police, security, and military personnel need to go through psychological exams and annual certifications all the time. A private citizen should do this too. If you need to carry a weapon, fine. if you want a carry a weapon because you have a idea from somewhere that your life in danger, then you should prove that your life is in danger. Keep in mind that everything that I say is my opinion. I have seen too many people carry a weapon for the wrong reasons, and they are often people who I would not trust with a paintball gun.

Unless you have already done this you cannot know for certain if you could. "Your's or his, life is precious." I carry my weapons to the range in one bag and my ammo in another bag, because I do not wish that responsibility, X U.S. Army infantry sargent.
    First, let me thank you for the service you have provided to this great country of ours, second, it is spelled sergeant. And third, I am a current US Marine Sergeant in the infantry (apparently the "Troop" part of my name escaped your notice). I have two combat tours under my belt and I have seen countless men getting killed. I myself have taken the life of several people. Did I particularly enjoy is? No. Will I ever do it again? If I have to, yes. I have taken the life of the enemy (often people younger than 17) in the defense of my brothers and once or twice in self defense. I know full well the responsibility of taking a life in justifiable self defense. And last, if you are going to draw your weapon on someone, you should be prepared to kill them, not wound them. I don't know about the army, but the Marines don't shoot to wound, we shoot to kill. That is why we are trained in escalation of force.
