    You have to have a federal license in firearms instruction to hold a class.
    Cool, then no one is advocating regular Teachers, instructing the class. --we had coaches teach Drivers Ed.---Many were not good drivers.

    If you have better information then cut the bull**** and post it.

    We're talking about certifying students in some manner on firearm use. Regular teachers can not do that just as regular teachers can not issue a driver's license no matter how excellent they instruct students.

    If the coaches couldn't authorize your learner's permit or driver's license, they are not what I'm talking about.

    There is already a youth gun education program with the NRA. Why not try to build on that as opposed to the uphill battle of getting it required in school then getting teachers to do it.

    My statement that there is no federally-mandated standard as to the requirements necessary to become a firearms instructor of any sort, contrary to your claim that there is. Its YOUR responsibility to show that such a standard exists, which you cannot do, because there is none.

    We're talking about certifying students in some manner on firearm use. Regular teachers can not do that just as regular teachers can not issue a driver's license no matter how excellent they instruct students.
    We'r enot talking about instruction that leads to licensure, we're talking about basic safety instruction. As such, your statement, above, is meaningless.

    The school could simply require a credit in firearms safety and give a list of entities which the school approves to perform the program. The parents are then free to send their child to any of those entities to complete the program (pro-choice ftw?). Proof of completion is faxed or e/snail-mailed to the school and the firearms safety credit is applied to the student's transcript.

    This can be don for first aid/cpr also, and is in fact how I have always advocated for sex-ed in the public school to be handled.

    If such a program were mandatory, I would agree with it being handled as such. I also agree that it is a good way to handle sex-ed.

    If such a list for sex-ed were multi-inclusive, focusing on instructor qualification and content, then those who want a pro-choice angle might go to planned parenthood, while those who want a pro-life angle could go to a religious institution. As long as the same minimum content is covered by a qualified instructor, I see no problem with the context of the presentation being left to the parents.
