    Hmmm... fascinating proposal. As one who would not purchase a firearm, if, as you mentioned in another post, education around use and care was also a mandated requirement, I would be OK with this and support it.

    I enjoy hearing "out of the box" ideas like this one.

    Naturally, the fines imposed on those that refused to purchase a forearm and train with it would go to to fund subsidies for those who -would- do so but cannot afford to.

    I would go along with this. Sounds a lot like my position on drug legalization.
