Should a handgun safety course be mandatory in PA?
I ran this idea past former Governor Ed Rendell and former Attorney General Tom Corbett and didn't recieve any response. I'd like to hear what others think. I believe foremost that both illegal (straw) purchases and accidental discharge in handguns would be dramatically reduced if the individual had to produce a certificate of handgun safety prior to being approved to purchase any handgun. What I had envisioned was a safe and responsible course similar to the Hunters' Safety course we had to pass before we could get our first hunting license when we were teenagers. Thanks in advance for your input.
