You Can Get a Permit To Carry a Concealed Weapon In One Hour | The Range: The Tucson Weekly's Daily Dispatch

You Can Get a Permit To Carry a Concealed Weapon In One Hour | The Range: The Tucson Weekly's Daily Dispatch

The one hour course I took, taught by Bob Denis of CCW AZ School, LLC., advertises on the website “1hr Law Gets Permit!”
There’s a disclaimer, that the one-hour stint is “for the person with experience with firearms, who does not have time to seat through several hours of additional firearms training” [sic], as well as a statement in class that the one-hour class is not designed for those new to guns.

But Denis never asked me whether I had shot a gun before, or evaluated my proficiency once I sat down for class.
Now, most responses (focus on the comments section there) to Mejdrich's article say that she misrepresented her experience to game the system, that she is a liar, a perjurer, that she doesn't respect the law and that she should be held personally accountable for what she did (on top of the usual internet slander, of course).

But one could make the case that her gaming of the system exposes loopholes that could be exploited by more dangerous folk than a 22-year-old woman with no gun-ownership experience.
Of course, that case would be ignored by legislators, such as Rep. Jack Harper, R-Surprise
