Gun guru and firearms fashionista Colion Noir shares the commonly held belief that hands-on experience with firearms is the key to “converting” anti-gun rights voters to a pro-gun rights position. And proves it above. Well, not entirely. But it’s a valiant, entertaining effort. And his initial point – that kids need basic firearms education – is well taken. As we’ve said before, the NRA needs to move beyond Eddie Eagle to introduce . . .
a more advanced in-school program teaching the four safety rules. Or at least the most important one: never point a gun at something you’re not willing to destroy. If schools did a “firearms intervention” role playing course – “Hey look! I found my Dad’s gun!” – to show tweens and teens what to do when someone else brings out a firearm, hundreds of lives would be saved. What are the odds that union card-holding, left-leaning American educators would allow such a thing?
