[VIDEO] Colorado Middle School Teaches Students About Guns; “I think that it’s better for them to have a respect for it.”
A recent segment on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt discusses a Colorado middle school’s different approach on guns, which is being hailed as a great way to introduce children to firearms and more importantly, allowing them the proper exposure to respect them and know how to safely operate them. “I think that it’s better for them to have a respect for it.”
And we couldn’t agree more. Back in the old days, firearm classes for kids used to be on the normal agenda. Sadly, it’s been stripped away over the decades and is no longer a routine class for many kids across the country. If it starts to come back and spread around, you can bet we’ll be seeing the beginning of a better country.
