    Wow, Im sure that law has been around for years and the Media is just now digging it up. "Getting one online without ever firing a gun" we all know as a CPL holder we all go to the range and fire our weapon, or does going infront of some person and shooting 30-60 rounds at a piece of paper count as "firing the gun safely"
    Tired of the Media kicking the legal gun owners in the pants. Tired of the Media peroid.

    In most states you can openly carry a firearm w/ no permitting requirements what so ever. I don't see why I need a class to put a jacket on.

    When my wife took her class she never had to fire a shot. She did have to do some drills and display safe handling. But that was a class for LEO family members and I guess they figured that we would take care of that part of it. Hmmmm

    How would it not be? Standing in front of a target and shooting maybe a hundred rounds on a none moving target under no stress(other then you must hit the target to pass). How does that help someone? My native state of Vermont lets anyone carry till you give them reasons to say other wise. Yet again I have never read/heard of anything remotely negative happening. So again I ask why would it not be safe?

    The statement "Getting one online without ever firing a gun" is False. Just media hype. You go online to download the application. That's all you get online, only the application, NOT the Concealed Carry Permit.

    You don't have to fire a gun to get a Concealed Carry application in Virginia (where this news video originates), nor any other State. But when you file your application (Virginia) you get printed, show proof of proficiency, ID, etc....

    This is just like when they want to ban AR style rifles. The media shows you someone firing a M16 full auto; then they imply that you can go to any gun shop and buy one. Misleading the (gun ignorant) public, the difference between an auto and semi-auto rifle.

    That TV News station should be called out on it, even letters written to the shows sponsors threatening a boycott of their products.
