  •  If that's the lesson, with no firearms present (17+ / 0-)

    than I'm all for it.  Why not include it in health classes.  "if you see a gun, don't touch it.  Walk away, get out of that house."

    In addition, I would recommend a law that makes it a criminal offense to have an unsecured weapon with children present in the house.  (Maybe it already is, I don't know) That's more safety.

    That's gun safety for kids.

    This particular user I'm talking about is talking about teaching firearm safety with firearms.

    That's extremism.

      If the training is mandatory for everyone whether they plan to use a gun or not, it is extremely wrong.  If a child is going to use a gun in anyway (planning to go hunting for example), I believe it should be mandatory.

      I still have my first hunting license from when I was eight years old (my grandfather lied and said I was nine so I could get it).  

      Gun safety should not be left up to the ability and willingness of the parent because so many have proven themselves to be incompetent.

      •  Just asking (0+ / 0-)

        Please don't blow up.

        Do you consider your grandfather a responsible gun owner?
