When Isn't Rifle Training a Great Idea?

Whenever rifle training gets looked at as an idea only for hunters - thanks to the N.R.A. and other firearms "enthusiasts" - Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, Dr. Ignatius Piazza and all his students take a collective sigh. Dr. Piazza, the founder and director of Front Sight, knows precisely why the N.R.A. only pushes the right for hunting purposes: they're cowards. While hunters' rights are certainly protected under the Constitution of the United States of America, there is more to the right to bear arms than the right to hunt occasionally.

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." is precisely how the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States reads. The right to bear arms is given to the people, or the People, is not given for recreation, it is also not given for hunting purposes. The right to bear arms is given to the people because the people need to be able to form a militia in order to keep the State secure in times of need. This is the view Dr. Piazza takes, and this is the view he runs Front Sight with.

Now, he's not talking about starting a revolution. He's not talking about forming a militia. What's he's supporting is that Americans have been given the right to bear arms in case our nation should ever need a militia, shouldn't men and women from all over the country, therefore, receive firearms training that would allow them to do just that? Gun training at Front Sight includes not only handgun training, which most firearms training schools provide, but also shotgun training and rifle training, even submachine gun training is available. No aspect of firearms or gun training should ever be infringed upon by our legislators or by our nation's views.
