Rep. Dan Flynn (R) says it takes too long to get concealed gun license

The rush is on at the State Capitol to reduce the number of required training hours in Texas, from 10 to four.

<<<snip>>>

Leading the charge to cut the number of required hours by more than half is State Rep. Dan Flynn (R-Van), who not only has his license to carry, he indicates to us he's ready to defend himself on the House floor.

Flynn says he wants to trim the number of training hours from 10 to four in order to eliminate much of the hassle and waste. He introduced House Bill No. 47 to make that change.

“You spend a lot of time taking breaks, you spend a lot of time hearing stories," Flynn said. "A lot of people who try to get their license, they have to take a day off of work, or they have to take a whole Saturday to go do this where, four hours, range time, you can do the same thing and it accomplishes it."

1. I would think Dan would prefer a ten hour head start

rather than just four hours.

2. "they" may get the drop on them during training

Everyone knows that having a concealed permit is the only thing stopping Obama's army of black panthers from taking over America and enslaving all the white republicans. During that ten hour training Obama's army could get the drop on all those concealed carry mavericks that don't need no stinkin' training.
Why do Teabaggers hate America?
