10. Not really.

If we incorporated the same training standards as the Civil Guard and they were under the direct control of the local Sheriff, it might work. I can see lots of Sheriffs not wanting the headache. Don't look for the FOP to jump for joy at the suggestion, either.

Concealed Carry training doesn't have much to do with police work. It could be done but the training would have to be much more comprehensive than just 8 or so hours of classroom work.

I do agree with your idea on one level. If citizens were given a bit more skin in the game than just sitting around waiting for "the professionals" to come do their bidding they'd be singing a whole different tune. I suspect most Americans wouldn't have the stomach for it. I dream of the days when "They ought to do something..." is replaced with "We ought to do something..."
