Virginia lawmakers have tasked the Virginia Board of Education to draft a firearm safety education class for elementary students.
I think it’s a great idea.
As long as we have guns all over the place, we might as well teach children to respect the damn things and to not be afraid of them. We teach kids to not play with fire, not walk alone after dark, not hang around swimming pools without adult supervision, we might as well teach them not to look down the wrong end of Daddy and Mommy’s hunting rifles and/or pistols. Gun safety, I’m all for. I don’t know if teaching kids how to shoot guns should be under the educational system’s purview; I think I’d have to go with the family’s wishes – maybe it would be an extracurricular club or an elective class? The VA board of education hasn’t yet released any details about whether they would offer training in the use or maintenance of guns.
