| | Try what? Driving: Check. Firearms: Check. I grew up around them. My Dad was an SOG guy. In my unit we can put more rounds downrange in a month than most units get to in an entire year. (Yay budget).

What what about the damn Driver's License. Half of the idiots on the road drive worse than some people shoot.
Firearms have less points of control than a a car. Don't knock it till you tired it.
That said, people still have to test before they can drive, every state requires this. And before I support anything that allows someone to carry from state to state, I would like to think there is a standard safety and proficiency course for everyone out there.
Just because someone grew up around firearms, doesn't mean they are proficient with them. If they are as good as they think they are, and know as much as they think they know, the course would be a cake walk for them. No harm done either way.
