I have supported a mandatory gun safety program for years, and the NRA could easily provide one. Based on my experience as an ER nurse a mandatory gun safety course would prevent injury and death caused by the ability of any moron who can buy a weapon without knowing how the safety works.
The lucky ones just shoot their foot off.
I learned bows, guns and hunting from my uncles as a preteen, and can assure you that this liberal has no intention of confiscating hunting equipment of any kind. The propagandists, like Barracoli and the always abusive Integration 20, claim this, probably because they know they would fail background checks.
I agree that the NRA could be used to pass this knowledge along, and think it should be mandatory. If it were up to me gun safety would be taught in the schools.
