We should have firearms safety classes in grade school and jr. high and shooting classes with range time in high school. Both accidents and crimes with firearms would decrease significantly.
That is the way it used to be.
I have heard stories of high schoolers carrying their rifles on the subway in NYC. Probably in the 20’s or 30’s...
Tiger, we used to.
My junior high had a .22 range in the basement, and I’m not *that* old. Okay, I’m a little old...but not much.
Only a couple three decades ago, the NRA, JROTC, and local shooting clubs taught gun safety and marksmanship in the schools (in the Northwest).
I agree with your assertion.
