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

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.
