If you wish to argue for a situation that will increase that probability significantly, go ahead.


Maybe. These classes could be done using dummy rounds, right? Those are lethal only at very close ranges.

Needless to say, for these there would need to be police supervision. And, again, students would need to be screened before taking it.

This would also be fully consistent with one of the main original purposes of the 2nd amendment (having a trained militia that could repel an invader). It's definitely better than having civilians buying guns without learning how to use them, and what they can do to meat (this can be shown by the instructor), first.

It's grisly, harsh, but not insane.

Kids forget the basics. You can teach them how to cross the road safely, but they’ll still run out without looking once in a while.

I don’t believe the father tried to sue the gun manufacturer. He was just ranting on looking for someone to blame for his son’s death. It was awful to see their grief for the boy.

Teaching children about guns is a potty idea. Children should be kept well away from guns.

I think this might be a good idea.

In a country that did not already have a bizarrely high number of school shootings.

I grew up in Rural Australia and we had gun safety lessons in primary school. Though it was about handling and storage and did not involve actual guns. By age 13 all the farm kids I knew had .22 semi automatic rifles, scopes. THough this was the 1970s.
