    I have not contradicted myself. I am against shooting guns at school. Teaching children about gun safety is not the issue. Firing guns is what I have an issue with as I have said several times in this thread.

    And just so that you do not miss it, teaching kids about being safe around guns is perfectly fine, shooting guns with actual bullets is not.

    He is talking about gun safety classes without the use of actual guns or shooting guns. That is what I would think is the only way this thing should be done.

    You don't fire the gun at a school. You fire it at a range. Likewise the driver's ed class doesn't drive the car at the school, they start out at a lot for the basic skills training and then move on to the road. The fire department doesn't deminstrate the extinguisher on a fire at the school, they bring the kids out to their smoke house.

    At no point is any student firing a gun on school property. I don't see the problem.

    Well, it is that way or not IMHO. I agree with mandatory gun safety lessons without firing of guns. If parents want to teach their children to actually fire guns they should teach them themselves or go to an organization that teaches responsible gun use.

    And that is what I do not think should happen. Gun safety is about being safe around guns, not teaching them how to safely use guns. That is purely down to the parents, not the government/school or NRA.

    The problem is the parents who don't want teach the children themselves or go to an organisation. Those are the parents such a class would exist to make up for. Every kid should fire a real gun under controlled conditions, rather their parents want them to or not.

    Safe around = safe use.
