    which I think offers little beyond what a well-educated and experienced person could learn on their own.

    The better option would be simply annual licensing and proficiency and safety courses.

      in a year if they really learned them in the first place.

      I'd rather have in depth 20 hour courses to begin with, followed by live testing at a range every 4 years.

        the Second Amendment requires that people who can't demonstrate their ability to safely handle a firearm may nevertheless acquire one.

          When it comes to that, I don't really have a problem with leaving it up to the States.

          If Illinois and Alaska want different standards, that's cool.

          If the States form compacts among themselves, and NY and CA agree to a common training and certification standard?  Yeah, that's also fine.
