Default Oh, How Times Have Changed

They just don't make 'em like they used to. Gun safety class at a public school? I grew up in the wrong era.

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.

Big LOL at the cross-eye dominant poser.

I always(except 1 year) taught the gun safety class at a public school. It was not during the regular school hours though. In MN.

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 should be taught like shop (which most schools are doing away with, costs and liability I've been told) as they are tools that need instruction.

When I was in shop one of the kids using the band saw cut off the tip of his finger (he was the safety officer too). I don't think anyone got sued but no one else lost a finger that year.

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.
