Aurora Memorial: We must make a change: National training program required prior to purchasing a gun of any kind.

My deepest condolences to the families of the victims, survivors and families of the survivors of the shooting in Aurora Colorado.  My home state and America and people around the world mourn your loss.  God Speed and Peace Be with You.

I propose that all people who purchase guns be required to have completed a training course prior to making the purchase.  This should be a Federal requirement, and a national registry of all people who have taken the gun safety course, gun ownership and current residence must be streamlined into one system.

Nobody needs to buy a gun in a hurry and nobody should be able to buy a gun without prior training on safe operation, handling and ethical and legal use of their weapon.

If the shooter would have been required to get to physically present himself to a training program operator, pass an exam and get a license that is certified and notarized,  he never would have passed.

I am not a fan of taking away our right to bear arms, but owning an assault rifle is ridiculous.

We need a license to drive a car.  We need a license to operate machinery.  In this country, you must pass a test to be a notary public.  Guys who work construction can't operate a forklift without going through certification for crying out loud....................

YET, in this country we allow people to buy weapons without knowing that they are trained on safe and lawful use.

The rigor and planning and patience and good honor necessary to take the time to attend and pass these courses would improve safe use of guns around the country and also would be a great deterrent, making it harder for criminals to buy weapons.  How many children are injured because stupid adults leave guns loaded in the house, accessible to curious little people? How many people hurt themselves each year because they don't know what they are doing?

I am not a fan of hunting, I can't even kill a spider.  I take them outside.  But I do understand that some people hunt and that we have a constitutional right to own a weapon to help us protect ourselves.  To continue to allow people to buy weapons and ammunition without proof that they have been trained on that weapon is plain irresponsible.

Please share if you support this idea.

We must change the ease of access to guns and background checks are not enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
