From reader G in Seattle:
Christine Clarridge at seattletimes.com documents a state-funded program designed to “educate convicted felons and career criminals about the serious legal penalties they face if they are caught violating the firearms prohibition upon their release.” Interesting that there’s public money for the Department of Corrections to educate convicted felons that they’ve lost their firearms privileges, yet at the same time, how often do you hear about community sponsored programs doing the opposite: helping to educate regular citizens about their right to own and carry a gun? Or about firearm training and safety? Yeah, I know there are lots of private gun clubs and other organizations that provide training and classes, but I wonder if that has created a gun culture where access can be limited to only certain folks. Food for thought.
