Ever since I started writing here at Bearing Arms, one of the drums I’ve beaten has been for mandatory gun safety classes in public schools. The truth is that while I believe this is properly the role of the parents, we’ve seen far too much evidence that parents are shirking their responsibility. Instead, kids all too often find guns in places that guns shouldn’t be and, having no idea about guns they didn’t learn from television, they do stupid things with them.
All too often, those stupid things get innocent people shot.
Another drum we’ve beaten a lot here in recent months has been the state of things in Virginia. Let’s be frank, no one here is happy with the way things are shaping up in the Old Dominion State.
