Perhaps a way that gun sellers can be more responsible would be to offer a short introduction to guns and safety course to new gun owners. It would allow them to demonstrate other products life safes, holsters, snap caps which would lead to an increase in revenue.
I don't see why it would be unreasonable to ask FFL dealers to provide that as a service.
that is my thinking as well. If there was any mandate to come forward about gun control, it could be the requirement of being trained on safety.
English Standard Version (ESV)
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
