    No more permits!

    I have an idea.

    In order to make sure everyone has the proper amount of training in the safe handling of a firearm lets require it during high school.

    Every student would be required to take a one year course in the proper use of firearms. All types of firearms to include revolvers, semiauto pistols, rifles and shotguns would be covered. The course would be taught by an independent contractor and would include practical training at the range with handguns and rifles. Every student would have to participate and pass in order to get their high school diploma!

    Thus anyone who had a high school diploma would be well trained and there would be no reason for anyone to have a permit to carry a gun.

    This might also help to cut down on the number of panty waists screaming "guns just scare me so bad"!

    I think a year long class (or at least semister) on firearms should be required in High Schools, but good luck ever getting that passed. Especially with lack of funding.

    Home schooling is great. My son was taught firearm safety by me and my grandson is being taught by both his dad and myself.

    The point of my proposal it to get training for everyone, allow for carry WITHOUT a permit and maybe even just cut down on the hysteria from the libs and the sheepes.

    How about 4 years of mandatory military service after HS then auto issue permit for Honorable Discharge.

    Cool

    Are you sure you want compulsory gun training in public schools? Even if it violates peoples moral convictions? Just where does it end?"

    And you want to discontiue the all-volunteer, professional armed forces?

    Sounds like a plan. While we're at it, do you think it would be too much to include classes in logic, ethics, and common sense?

    If you shut your eyes really tight, things don't go away. Let's say you're attacked by a mugger. You knock the gun out of his hands. You pick it up....

    Now what?

    Just because you KNOW how to work a gun, doesn't mean you HAVE to.

    And the immorality of learning to be safe with a firearm is...?
    We teach them to (hopefully) be safe behind the wheel of the most dangerous thing everyone has.
    Was there the slightest hint of forcing anyone to carry against their wishes, to have to hunt and kill something to pass the course?

    We can teach sex (like there's not enough of us clogging up the planet already) but not gun safety and Fam?

    And yes, I do think it's a good idea to have everyone serve time in the military, volunteer or not. It straightened my youg buttt out and taught me the meaning of discipline and responsibility, the idea of putting others before me..

    re

    i'm always amazed at how many folks support mandatory military service out of high school - i know i would - others countries do it - we might just have a bit less youth problems and a greater appreciation for what we have in this country if we did - stepping off soapbox

    i have mixed opinions on homeschooling. I went to public school for a good chuck of my life and was also homeschooled for a period of time. It really comes down to the parent. I suppose some are very vigil and make sure the kids are getting all that they need. I also know a lot of kids who "do" 2 hours of "school" and call it a day. Also it is very very easy to cheat when homeschooled. Personally after having done both i highly doubt i will ever homeschool my children. It really takes away from the social element that kids should have.
    I LOVE ME SOME HK's!

    RIP Mike, miss you buddy!
