I started to think about how we teach stuff in school that 1) Parents don't like 2) Politicians don't like 3) Private organizations don't like and at the very same time 1) Parents do like it 2) Politicians do like it 3) Private organizations do like it... so we have two groups of people 1) Don't like 2) Do like... for instance, teaching about contraceptives... teaching about abortion.... it has been said many times that children have a right to such knowledge... well, they also have constitutional rights such as the right to bear arms... should we teach children about gun safety as well as supervision of using a gun and its effect on people (gun-shot victims as well as victims protected by guns)... I think that it will overall lead to less gun-related deaths among kids and also give them the information so that they can make an informed choice about gun ownership in the future... at the same time, it would teach would-be criminals the hard fate if they commit a crime and end up being the loser in confrontation that involved a gun... so 1) Promotes safety 2) Promotes knowledge 3) Promotes informed decisions 4) Deters crime... as with contraception/abortion, it promotes safety for the gun owner and should they ever encounter a gun in the future... Of course, this would be taught at an appropriate age where they can handle a gun as well as learn about its safety and consequences of its use... We do have something similar to that with ROTC in high school but since sexual education is already beginning to be mandate across all schools, why not gun safety?

How small are the hard core gun advocates "members" that they need to have their guns in every aspect of our lives?

We get it, you drive a giant truck, you make up for all your little insecurities with your guns and ammo you get insane about your football teams.

Why do we need to introduce a weapon to children in school. Our country is already ignorant enough......we don't need to add redneck fuel to the fire.

1) First I am not white... 2) I don't drive a truck... 3) I don't currently own a gun/ammo 4) I don't follow football... I am not introducing a weapon in school and schools aren't promoting sex... I am talking about gun safety courses in school just like we have sexual education in school...

All children should carry weapons. That would end bullying. That seems what these lefties are all for anyway. Gotta stop the bullies. Send em all locked and loaded I say.

Are you sure? You did mention guns, so you might want to check again.

This is the most horrible, stereotypical post I have EVER read. Wow.

I was simply getting some enjoyment out of the fact that you do not fit into the demographic box a previous poster assumed you did.

Yep. If a bully says a mean word to a kid, they can shoot them in the face.

Perfect solution with no drawbacks at all.

Thanks for so clearly underscoring your complete detachment from reality....
