Why would anyone oppose this?

I am a believer in educating our young folks about safety, and safety around firearms, and handling firearms is no different. Reading this from Bearing Arms I have to wonder how lIberals would respond to it

A new piece of legislation introduced in North Carolina aims to give high school students a little extra learning: firearms education.

House Bill 612, filed this week by Representative Jay Adams, would give the state room to develop a firearms education course and allow the class, which would include “firearms safety education as recommend by law enforcement agencies or a firearms association”, to be offered as an elective to high school students.

The course, which would be developed by the North Carolina Board of Education, would not allow live ammunition in the classroom and would also cover the history and mechanics of firearms with a firm emphasis on the importance of gun safety.

Honestly, I cannot lay my finger on any reason anyone would be opposed to this. Especially, I would imagine, Liberals who favor sex education because kids are going to be curious so……. By the way, I have no issue with sex-ed as long as it is agenda free, and teaches all the consequences that can happen. The same goes for firearm safety. But some members of the Cult of Gun Control, are, well, putting their agenda over common sense

Of course, the bill has drawn sharp criticism from individuals who feel the course would encourage students to become shooters… or something.

“I think it would hurt and help. It’s kind of like a catch-22,” said Tanica Wilkerson.

How it would hurt exactly, I cannot say, but, Liberals…………

“I think high school is a little early,” Wilkerson said. “I think some of those kids are not ready for that type of environment, to be exposed to something like that. I don’t feel like they’re mature enough.”

What type of environment? This is about teaching kids what NOT to do with guns, the rules of gun safety. Not all kids have a dad and granddad like I did. They both emphasized how to properly handle, and operate a firearm, how to respect what it could do and what NEVER to do with a firearm. But, not all kids have that background in firearms.  Why would anyone oppose educating them? Perhaps one word sums up their opposition, ignorance!

“I don’t even see the point in that,” Jenny Rorie said. “I don’t think they should, there’s enough violence going on without them doing that.”

Oh Good Freaking Grief! Teaching high school kids how to safely handle firearms is not going to increase violence. It will teach responsibility, and may reduce an already very low rate of accidental shootings. Liberals equate guns and violence as if they are the same thing. Again, they have fallen for the propaganda of the gun control fanatics. How very sad Imagine if this young man had been taught safety, just maybe a tragedy would not have happened.

It “suddenly went off.”

A teen is dead after he accidentally shot himself while his friends watched on Instagram Live, according to WXIA.

“I heard a big boom,” his mother Shaniqua Stephens said. “I couldn’t tell if it was a gun shot or what.”

Stephens had just watched her 13-year-old son, Malachi Hemphill, take out the trash Monday evening when she heard the gunshot.

She rushed upstairs with her daughter to find her son in pool of blood. His phone was still streaming on Instagram Live.

“We kicked in the door. We found him just laying there in a pool of blood,” Stephens told the station. “My daughter screamed and said, ‘Mom turn his phone off!’ As I proceeded to look at his phone he was on Instagram Live.”

The teen was live on Instagram holding a gun when it suddenly went off. He was rushed to the hospital where he died.
