There are several pictures of a 1956 Gun safety course, taught in school, at this link.
theblaze.com / there was
a time when kids were taught to respect firearms, not fear them
This is my favorite comment from under the article.
We had a "riffle club" when I was in high school. Now you can't even eat a waffle in the shape of a gun.
When asked by news reporters in the late 80's - early 90's
the reason "why" given by most gang members and want-to-be
gang members was "for respect."
We're supposed to respect the fire arm safety course,
not the thug who want's your lunch money. No wonder
respect has become a word of satire and failure.
No wonder the Cartman generation doesn't want to
take the safety and training courses with their
fire arm purchases.
If a person living in this country doesn't start learning
up on riffle safety, and gun culture RIGHT NOW, they
are going to continue falling with the rest of society.
And those of us who know better will get to watch
when ya'll finally hit bottom.
