I agree to a very mild extent. I recently went to a gun range for the first time and would love to eventually own, legally. but children at a young age can't fully grasp the consequences and unless it's essential to their daily lives, a potentially dangerous lesson. most will be fine, but a few might get some bad ideas. which is pretty much the same problem with adults.
I don't think we should ban, but I definitely think they should be regulated. we regulate more minor things. this is major.
teaching kids at a young age how to properly handle a gun can save a lot of accidental deaths, and it is important they know the consequences for misusing a weapon. I don't think it will effect the shooting rampages much, because those people don't give a damn about anything. but it is good to be knowledge about guns, and not be afraid of them.
by that logic there is nothing wrong with people owning rocket launchers or tactical nuclear weapons weapons.
some things are too dangerous to be owned by private citizens.
That's how the focus is wrong. You put the person in the wrong for simply being in possession of an item without having permission of some remote government figures. You may as well have knife and fork laws enforced in the same manner as far as those who haven't been taught any manners are concerned. You don't ban the tool. You only have to ban misconduct with the tool. Don't worry about the one with bad table manners who threatens to shoot if asked to leave the table. Such a one would offer you no thanks for being invited to the table in the first place.
Even then, people will still abuse guns. the only way to resolve gun conflicts would be to ban them. and i simply dont think thatll happen. Ever.
I don't think this will really affect anything. these killings aren't from someone simply using them unsafely.
what exactly do you suggest be taught in this class? what effect will it have on potential shootings?
