"Mandated safety course for regulated firearms purchase"

Isn't this a good thing? The NRA lauds it's Eddie Eagle educational program, and many pro-gun folks recommend putting gun safety education back in public schools.

A safety course, or psychological exam, or demonstrating a "need" are ALL violations of a basic civil right. Safety courses are great and responsible firearm owners encourage people to learn the art of safe weapon handling as well as acquire skill with said arms. However the right to purchase, keep, and bear arms is a civil right that SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!
