Gun Clubs At Schools

What happened to them?

As Glenn notes, this is about oikophobia, even though it’s as, or more, important for kids to learn about the proper use and handling of guns as it is for them to learn to drive, particularly considering that the former is a fundamental constitutional right. As Glenn notes, this insane “gun-free zone” and “zero tolerance” policies have been a horrific failure.

I wonder if drum and bugle corps still carry the wooden rifles, as they did when I was in high school? Or is that too “terroristic“? More and more, it seems like sending your kids to a public school constitutes parental malpractice.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent? as Glenn says, maybe the people we need to keep guns away from are elected Democrats.

Over the last few years, I’ve heard the left talk about how hateful conservatives can be. Being a libertarian, there have been plenty of occasions where I disagreed with conservatives in discussions on social issues, but I’ve never at any moment gotten to the point where they were berating me or wishing harm upon me.

Needless to say, I’m strongly considering sending this one to the police since the e-mail address, which I’ve left off the post, is from a legitimate account.

They don’t want us to have guns because they project and think that we’re as violent and deranged as they are.

  1. We had an accidental shooting here last night. A 12-year-old shot his 16-year-old brother in the head while they were “playing” with a firearm (and this is in Montreal, Canada). Play, firearm – to me, the two words just don’t go together.

    I was lucky. Even though we did not own guns, my father drilled weapon safety practices into me from a young age. Maybe this kid could have been saved if either his father (oops, divorced mom) or his school (oops, guns are bad, mmkay?) had done the same to him and his brother.

  2. The military routinely takes people as young as 17 and trains them to safely handle a wide variety of weapons including fully automatic ones. Their methods are simple and effective. I left the Army 35 years ago but still, upon first touching any weapon, point it in a safe direction and verify whether or not it’s loaded. I don’t take anyone’s word for it but insist on checking for myself. It’s like riding a bicycle. Repetition and simplicity are key to firearms safety, as are consequences for violating the standards.
