Gun Safety in Schools

Finally it has come to pass that a state allows gun safety to be taught in schools.

As always, the bleeting begins,

"I personally don't think firearm safety has a place in the schools," Lori Haas, spokeswoman for the Virginia Center for Public Safety, told "That's up to the parents to teach that at home."
They can force schools to provide sex education using cucumbers and condoms and require them to teach that homosexuality is good but firearms safety has no place in schools and should be left up to parents? What the hell planet do these people live on?

The usual bias lives on as the article starts with,
Schoolchildren in Virginia who aren't old enough to pack their lunches yet will soon start learning about packing heat.
This program has NOTHING to do with carrying a firearm or even shooting a firearm. The legislation calls for the Eddie Eagle program which is strictly safety around guns.
The entire program is centered aroudn the very simple message,
STOP! Don't Touch. Leave the Area. Tell an Adult.
As I have heard multiple other places, it really should end with tell a responsible adult. As many incidents of late have been ignorant and irresponsible often drug dealing or using baby factories leaving a gun around to protect their stash when the child gets their hands on it.

I think this legislation is made of nothing other than WIN!

But I guess that doesn't count since I am part of the conspiracy of death as a gun owner and firearms safety instructor.

  1. Oh, no! They'll be learning about how to stay safe around GUNS? That's terrible! We could use the money spent on that program to buy more copies of "Heather Has Two Mommies" for the school library, or give the truant officers better vehicles for chasing down absent students.
