It is absurd to assert that a grade schooler could pass the current test, so I'll write that off to sarcasm.

Its not the test I care about, it is actually knowing the material that concerns me. If renewals don't have a much better understanding of use of force laws leaving a class than when they entered, the instructor is doing a lousy job.

Tomneal, I see few who can't actually pass, but those that cannot should NOT be carrying. Usually safety issues cause more failures than actual scores.

Dolanp, I disagree that passing the test means one knows the law. The test is very broad and does not cover the law as it is taught in class.

Tom,

I agree with most of your suggestions except for the training and retesting.

As an instructor, I see people who renew who cannot even begin to tell you when they can use deadly force, where they cannot or can carry, etc.
