When did they start licensing your choice of religion? They haven't? Oh, then they must be training you and licensing you for that free speech thing, right? No? Huh. I have not heard of having to get a license before refusing to incriminate oneself in court, or for practicing the refusal to offer quarters to military personnel.

So exactly where is this notion that the right to bear arms needs to be licensed and registered before being practiced?

That really is absurd.

(I am not saying people should not get training in whatever kind of firearm they choose to use/own, but constitutionally, the govt has no right to enforce training as a prerequisite to the right. We can discuss this in another thread if you want, don't want to get into a debate here.)

I think the 2nd Amendment's provision for "a well-regulated militia" could be construed as possibly even requiring, let alone permitting, licensing and registration.
