The ninnyhammers at Everytown are having themselves a little freak out over the fact that some Kindergartners in PA are getting gun safety lessons in school. By gun safety, we’re not talking about going to the range for PE. It’s the “stop, don’t touch it, leave the area, tell an adult” approach to kids and guns. Of course, even this is too much for the anti-gunners.
I just love the intellectual inconsistency in the Left’s ideas of safety and responsibility. Remember, it’s generally the same people who are anti-gun that think we should begin teaching sex ed at age 10 and think it’s a great idea to hand out condoms to 6th graders. They people love to point out that abstinence only sex ed doesn’t work.
They’re right of course, about the abstinence only sex ed. So why do they think that not even talking about guns and gun safety with kids is the right approach?
I propose a compromise. How about taking the sex ed approach to gun safety. With young kids, don’t touch it. At 13, we’re going on a class field trip to the range and we’re going to learn The 4 Rules and safe handling practice. You can give condoms to my 6th grader if I hand hand a .22 to yours.
