Gun Safety In Schools

Logistical issues aside, I like it!

Class, this is a gun. Let's learn how to use it.

An effort is under way to add a course on gun safety and marksmanship to the state's [OH] curriculum for high schools, in essence using the schools to familiarize children with firearms. The lesson would be offered as a one-semester elective that could be used to satisfy graduation requirements.
Sounds like a great idea. Even if you're against guns and think they should be completely banned, the fact is they are not. Therefore, there is the chance that your child will run across a gun (say, at a friend's house). What with your child do? Will s/he know how to be safe, or have you set your kid up for tragedy?

Do I even need to point out the irony in this statement?

"I really think it's something that's better left in the hands of parents," said Bob Scott, superintendent of Avon Lake schools. "Even couched as gun safety, it would be too divisive. I don't know if it's the school's position to get involved."
...unlike sex education, which is obviously something better taken out of the hands of parents by the government. Right?
