Yes, but would have to be tested by the courts. My argument would ask which other guaranteed freedoms require mandatory education to exercise.

I always like using the 3rd amendment because it highlights the absurdity of their position.

Like that would do anything to help stop gun crime committed by criminals. Stupid!

If they want to require a free class make it apart of high school that everyone needs to take. Any barrier to entry is infringement.

Obviously. Here's a simple analogy: if states required a free speech safety class to speak, would it be Constitutional?

No because most violent gun crime is committed by people who, imagine my shawk, don't own the guns legally. We don't have a gun violence problem, we have a violent black youth problem.

If you have the money to fight it, you might win. Don't expect help from the ACLU.

This would imply that the class must be taken before the person possesses a firearm.

Any gun class would be worthless as it would not address the gun the person ultimately purchases as all guns are different.

And what if you fail the class ? Oh, now you cannot have a gun because you are a bad test-taker ?

Really, here are the requirements for possessing a gun :

a) you are a freeman

THAT'S IT

OP should provide a link to his paper when he completes it. Its should be good for a laugh.

And OP is confused .. thinking that the government grants rights. Governments do not grant rights at all. Look at the history of the 2nd amendment LAW where many did not want it in the bill of rights as some thought that doing so would actually encourage firearm regulation which they thought the government could not do.

Yeah, the right to bare arms shall not be infringed. Forcing people into a class and no it ain't free if it's tax funded, is infringement.
