    Here in Missouri as of 1/1/17 you no longer need a permit to carry concealed.

    Another thing regarding UK law, if for whatever reason if you held a firearm or shotgun licence in the UK and your home was broken into and the assailent attacked you and robbed you, then you shot and killed him with your firearm you would go to jail, if you even beat the hell out of the attacker in your own home you can only use appropriate force anything above appropriate force then you are in trouble, now you see what it's like when liberal lunatics and european law runs your country for the last 40 years. I'm so pleased we have signed off with brexit and we are on our way YIPPIE! lets get back to common sense once again.

    But the question is will we ever have more relaxed firearms laws?

    To be honest I doubt it. But it is what it is I suppose.

    Wow that is rough in the UK. Iowa you can sit through a class and don't ever touch a gun that's $50, then your permit is $60. Or you can take the class online and again never touch a gun. Then after that just conceal and go. Kinda crazy you never go through any fire arms safety here.

    ejmolitor37, do you have to take a safety class to buy a firearms hunting license in Iowa?

    In Missouri everyone born after 1967 (I think that is the year) has to take a hunters safety class before they can buy a firearms hunting permit.

    To hunt you have to take hunter safety course if over 18 I believe you can do that online as well. So you don't touch a gun there either.
    Younger than 18 and you go through a 3 day class iirc.
    21 and over you get a permit to purchase and can buy guns and carry open. Or take the class mentioned in my last post to carry concealed. Pretty much you can never have touched a gun, go buy one take a online conceal class and be walking around with a gun. Not smart in my opinion.
    We are a shall issue state which changed about 3 years ago I believe.

    I do find it quite interesting to see how different states in the US handle firearms legislation.

    Here in the UK firearms are a reserved issue held at Westminster. But we do have some variations. Celticcrusader who I believe lives in Wales can buy an airgun up to a certain power. No questions asked, but as of 1/1/2017 here in Scotland that is no longer the case. A license is required for any airgun, and the law on firearms in Northern Ireland is seperate from that of the rest of the UK.

    That is strange. Here you have to take a class at a range. And the last part, you have to fire 12 rounds. 10 of the 12 have to hit a circle about the same size as a person's chest I'd say for you to pass.

    When I took mine, there was a woman there trying the test with a gun she'd rented at the shop. I think it was a .357, she said she left her .38 at home. It went about like you'd expect, but the proctor was kind enough to let her try it again.

    At any rate, considering how dangerous guns are I can't imagine many folk would buy a gun, take the course, but never learn how the thing operates. At least to some degree. And there's no helping those that would, because if you DID make them take a course like the one here they'd probably also be the type to just say screw licenses and carry it anyway.

    There's always hope. It's a constant ebb and flow here. My Virginia Concealed carry license at one point had mutual recognition in 37 states. In 2015 our state's Attorney General took it upon himself to try and scrap 25 of those reciprocity agreements. That didn't go over so well, and his decision was reversed pretty quickly.

    Laws can change. Just a matter of getting the right electorate in.

    I agree its crazy to me that people that have no clue how a guns operates can get one and carry it. We used to have to qualify here but that changed. It was a joke as well, you could qualify with a 22 cal and then carry an AE 50!
