If there were anything, I'd like to see training advertised and "pushed" onto first-time buyers when they bought a gun. Something like advertising local shooting ranges and trainers. I have had to tell so many people, "Do you want me to point my gun at you too?" it is hard to believe. A lot of people have no idea what they are doing. It's kind of like,"I wonder what this button does". I hate being around those types of people.
Shit, I went shooting with my stepdad the other day and he loaded spent casings into his gun and tried to fire them. I ended up getting him 5hrs of training for Christmas just based on that fact. People should not have to be around someone who knows that little about handling firearms. I wouldn't require anyone to do it, but strongly encourage them to do so.
Are the backorders really that bad? Just with the "assault weapons" or with all guns now? I really can't just walk in a gun retailer and buy and handgun nowadays?
Right now, they are way worse than you think. 98% of the manufacturers and sellers will not have any guns or ammo for the foreseeable future. The shelves are completely empty except for shotgun shells.
You cannot just walk in and buy a pistol. There is a waiting period where they clear you with the ATF
