A new bill in South Carolina that would create a new high school class for gun training was introduced by Republican State Sen. Lee Bright, focusing on firearm safety and the Second Amendment. Bright told Eyewitness News that the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., made him rethink the Second Amendment. ”I believe the more guns we have the safer we are, because had there been someone in Newtown with a weapon, had it been a teacher, they could have stopped it early,” he said.
Bright further added, ”Because had there been someone in Newtown with a weapon, had it been a teacher, they could have stopped it early.”
The Huffington Post reports:
The “South Carolina Gun Safety Program” would teach students to properly use a firearm, safety techniques and the history of the Second Amendment. The course would be offered as an elective and would take place at an off-campus shooting range.
“We’ve got football, we’ve got basketball, and we’ve got baseball,” Bright told WSPA. ”I think if they had a hunting team, it would be a great idea.”
Apparently, Bright and I went to very different high schools. Somehow baseball and target shooting are now paralleled. Creationism is taught in schools over science. Our kids are being dumbed down. Welcome to 2013 where more guns = safer classrooms. Guns in high school: What could go wrong?
