I just find it so funny that almost all of those little boys have eyes bugged out and mouths open!! We should still do this. It would be a great way to get fathers involved too.
Agreed! With the "hunter's safety course" requirement for hunting licenses, i can't see any realistic justification not to have this as part of the P.E.-type classes. As far as safety well, ask my drivers' education instructor how safe he felt; i could do as much damage with the DE car as with a bolt-action rimfire, particularly under supervision.
I wish they had done that at my school. Luckily, Most of the schools I went to were country schools and everyone there hunted so I didn't have to deal with any anti gun crap. Thank God for the country where BS liberal policies have no place.
It really should be taught. The private school I went to allowed kids to bring in firearms to show. No harm was ever done and no one ever intended to do any harm. Knives were common - everyone was showing off their latest acquisitions. I'm 46 - we are one generation removed from the "good ol' days".
My son went to the same private school I did, and one day I was speaking to the headmaster and offered to teach an after-school class on firearms safety and shooting for students in middle and upper school at a nearby range. He treated me like a homicidal maniac. I ended up pulling my son out of that school. Times change, places change, people do dumb things. 'Twas ever thus.
