LORDY LORDY! They’re teaching kids gun safety and responsibility in a Wyoming grade school. REEEEEE!
Yes, they are.
And they have been for a long, long time.
It’s literally called ‘marksmanship training’ and plenty of other states offer it as well. But you know, it’s more fun to shriek like a crazy person about Wyoming.
Case in point.
Those are air rifles you twit.
Oh, and we took a look at #DemVoice1 and LOL.
HOO BOY, the more they lose, the more they lose their minds.
Everything about this picture should make you uncomfortable pic.twitter.com/SXBGOiwgjp

And yet, it doesn’t.
In fact, everything about that picture makes this editor feel more comfortable, and hopeful. Teaching young people how to safely use a firearm will ultimately prevent more gun accidents and the Left’s favorite go-to, gun violence.
1. Those are air rifles.
2. Nothing about this photo is unsafe. The children are learning how to safely handle a firearm. In a country with gun ownership, that's a very, very good skill to have, regardless if you own guns or not.

Sure – just like driver’s ed – teaching responsible usage at an appropriate age
I thought proper training in handling and usage was a good thing?

This should be taught in school. Parents sign a permission form, make sure the fundamentals are being taught- I fail to see an issue. I assume you don’t have an issue with teaching sexuality and preference- diff side same coin.

This is fantastic. The more good people we have with guns, the better. The students should get a choice of course but other than that, I don’t see a problem. People wanting to ban these things and make good people defenseless, that’s a problem.

Here in the crazy Republican state of New York, kids as young as 11 can take hunter education course to learn marksmanship. https://t.co/XTYFUjpHvs

At that age in Wyoming they likely all have AR-15s at home and have been likely shooting for years prior to this class. I live in NY and I got my first Pellet gun when I was about 7 and was shooting my .22 and shotguns before I was 10.

Brian must either be from Wyoming or have friends and family there.
I grew up up in MA and we learned about gun safety, maintenance, marksmanship, and archery in summer camp. We were about the same age. As long as a trained professional is conducting the class and kids are taught properly and parents are OK with it, I don't have a problem.

Sane people don’t have a problem with it.
