It goes both ways,some class members are expert gun handlers that have shot for years,and others have never even owned a gun---but still,it's not rocket science to operate a gun safely,to go to the extreme of 12 hours of training.

Yanno, maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to have

safety training in what, after all, is a national heritage,

in our public schools...

It's all good, so long as it isn't Mandatory or required. (unless of course, it is a hunters' safety course required for the priviledge of hunting the masters' game animals )

dumbass soccer moms cant even agree on when sex ed should be taught, or if it should be taught at all. and thats a natural human process. theres no way in hell gun safety will be introduced even though i agree with you.

WHY SHOULDN'T sitting through an occasional gun safety class

be mandatory? It wouldn't be Marine Corps boot camp, it would be

a safety training class on our RKBA, which, it turns out, also does

include ALL OF US...

I'll have to re-read it, but i don't remember the Second Amendment stating anything about "shall not be infringed, with the exception of a training requirement". Firstly

I'm not looking to jump through any extra hoops to exercise my right. If i trusted my government not to screw this up too and not to misuse this as a means of control, i wouldn't mind mandatory training, but i don't trust my government to be competent and/or noncorrupt.

Gun safety classes in school seem like a good idea. It's not a "by law mandatory requirement" but it would affect most people. There would be lots of people who object to it but as someone mentioned earlier, people object to sex ed too. Give parents the "opt out" choice if they don't want their children to take the course.

Teach it alongside DARE in the seventh grade. It should be taught by police or people certified through the NRA or something, not just some teacher who was given a 1 hour training class on it themselves.
