When I took my intial CCW course, I also took another 8 hour law course due to the fact I was using my CCW permit for security employment reasons as well as several other classes for my "on-duty" profession. I dont think 2 hours is enough time to properly prepare someone for the realization that some day they may take a life to save others. I do agree that everyone should be able to arm themselves, but they need to be mentally prepared as well as physically to know what is right and what is not. If anyone has any doubts about my sincerity, it may help to know I am an Ordained Minister myself and fire my 1st rifle at the age of 6 while hunting for deer. Yes, I got it too!
I think this is a great idea however I am concerned for the amount of time the training involves. In AZ, one of the most liberal states in regards to gun laws, the initial CCW class was a minimum of 8 hours to obtain certification, then there was an NCIC investigation prior to obtaining the actual permit. Now it is completely legal, for any legal resident to carry concealed without a permit. A 2 hour course in someone's private shooting range on their property is not enough training to know when it is right to use that weapon. Some people have enough common sense to know what is right and what is not, however this might entice the wrong person to join just for this one reason.
