West Virginia is for gun lovers

February 1st, 2008 · No Comments · Current Events


So West Virginia has proposed a law that would allow schools to teach a gun and hunting safety course. Lets get rid of art, music, home economics and shop classes but come on in we are going to find the money to teach kids to shoot straight. Kids would handle unloaded weapons and the goal is to increase revenue from hunting licenses, hunting materials and planned activities. Also reported is that 10 year old kids can apply for hunting licenses which begs the question, what prevents a 10 year old from bringing in ammunition for the unloaded weapons in the classroom? That’s right kids don’t shoot people at school. It is a media conspiracy to take away a citizen’s right to bare arms. I forgot all my NRA literature.

If you are a responsible adult. It is your right to own and operate a gun. Have as many as you want. I just don’t think children under the age of 16 should be using guns. I don’t think this should become part of the school’s curriculum. If the state wants to allow children to learn how to hunt and carry weapons then let the NRA, Boy Scouts, or local hunting clubs offer courses.

I have a novel idea for generating revenue for the state of West Virginia, stop building statues of Senator Byrd and research new ways of promoting ecological tourism. West Virginia is a beautiful state.
