Just because there's no 'mandated' training certainly does not mean people "dont get training." My state requires NO training for a cc permit. There are several other states the same. Some states require NO permit at all.
There is only one study t
hat I know of (we've discussed this issue alot on gun forums because not even all gun owners agree on it)...that examines if states WITH mandatory training and those without have ANY difference in gun negligence or accidents (not crime...training has no bearing on crime).
There's a study of OR and WA, regarding OR requiring training and WA not. The findings were that WA has a higher population, higher population density, more guns, more CC permits, and fewer gun-related incidents than OR
This does not mean that training is not important. Everyone agrees it is. It just indicates that 'mandatory' training does not make a difference in public safety....probably because gun owners are getting the experience they need one way or another.
Otherwise there is no data showing that states with mandatory training requirements have any lower rate of gun incidents.
There's no requirement in my state, as I said....and while I'm not 'into guns' I do like shooting and I actively train (not just target shoot, train)..mostly because it's fun.
