An absolutely outrageous idea that ordinary people should be allowed to  
carry guns of any description. Look at the comparison between gun related deaths  i
n the UK and the US, popuation difference aside the per capita %age speaks 
for  itself. Also look at the statistics of how many of them are shot with their 
own  weapon (that includes cops).
Just think of the amount of idiots that get a driving licence - you want to  
trust them to make split second decisions to use a firearm correctly and in  
accordance with prevailing legislation ?????
And out of interest, what sort of "training qualification" would be  
appropriate......I don't think there are many judgemental simulators in the  public 
domain which would allow for scenario training; let alone people  qualified to 
impart the rationale behind the whole judgemental process of  whether to shoot 
or not.
I know this isn't the forum for this debate but I cannot believe this is  
even a serious consideration.
