    that some forms of ownership carry much less risk than others.

    E.g. someone who only owns a rifle for hunting could have a lower training requirement in the laws/regs re the use of lethal force, and it could be folded into the hunting license. IOW, if their rifle remains locked up at home it poses very little risk to the public, and they would receive/show proficiency in the law if and when they next apply for a hunting license. If they already had the training in the past 5 years they would be waived. Etc.

    I used to assume that concealed carry permits meant something, and in some places they still do. But I read recently that many jurisdictions have no procedures for revoking a permit when someone becomes a prohibited person. I don't think relying on voluntary compliance is working very well in that regard.

      Where did you see this, and what locations were stated?  This is news to me.

      •  Don't recall exactly (0+ / 0-)

        Probably hear on daily kos, and I don't recall anything more specific than that, so I can't be sure of it at all.

        My last sentence is in reference to the number of women who get shot after a protective order is issued. Voluntary compliance is not working for that population of prohibited persons.
