Would You List Concealed Weapons Permit on Resume?

Dear Experts, Last summer, I was teaching a public relations writing class. As we covered resume writing and business letter writing, the students were asking what skills, talents, and abilities they should list on the resume. One student in the class had a concealed weapons permit; he thought this ability to carry should be listed on his resume. I was dumbfounded. I told the student he should tailor his resume to the appropriate audience. Honestly, is this something a student should put on a resume? I am curious to read what anyone has to say about this.
