    "Firearm use and safety" appears an oxymoronic phrase.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Only to those ignorant of firearms.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    When used as directed in accordance to manufacturer's instructions and the law, firearms stop crime.

    Rape, for example, is a crime where lethal force is appropriate and legal, even if penetration hasn't actually occurred yet.

    Only to people that are ignorant on the subject.

    This would be an infringement on the right, no different than the government requiring that someone take and pass a class before they can be a reporter, a blogger, a protester, a priest, or a woman wantng an abortion.

    I remember a few teachers back in High school, who didn't want us to read ahead, to the next chapter. turns out they were just reading one chapter ahead their selves. --I would not want people like that teaching gun Safety.

    People like that aren't allowed to.

    Firearms instruction is not something just any teacher could do.

    You have to have a federal license in firearms instruction to hold a class.

    Pretty sure that such a license does not exist.

    Ancedotal, and thus meaningless. Even if true.

    When I was in junior high, there was a required course called, "outdoor education". A part of the course was gun safety.
