    True. I did a report about people interested in owning a gun(s) started out with soft air to learn the basic mechanics, safety, etc..before moving on 'real' weapons.

    But it is not the position or right of the government to decide how parents should raise their children when it comes to guns.

    It is the right to bear arms, it says nothing about mandating every child to shoot a weapon (even if they or their parents are against it).

    That is your opinion but that opinion should not be mandated by the government or forced upon children by schools/the government.

    Sure but firing a gun a few times on a field trip hardly qualifies as 'raising'. Its just a short class, not a way of life.

    That is where you and I disagree.

    I think forcing that upon people might also be unconstitutional. It is not the duty of the government to force gun use or gun teaching upon the population.

    Article 1 Section 8, Congress has the obligation to train the militia. This can be a basic gun saftey class in highschool since most of those kids would have to register with Selective Service soon anyway.

    Train the militia, aka the army as it is known now. Forcing children is not training the militia.

    Re: Newest NRA campaign idea, make learning to shoot mandatory in school

    As far as I am concerned...the NRA national leadership generally service the gun/ammo manufacturers.

    Almost nothing the national NRA leadership says means anything to me.


    You disagree with me...I don't much care.
