I can also say that I honestly don't care whether it's perceived by pro-gun industry advocates as "neutral", as I will not allow the primary gun industry lobbying group to teach my children anything. The NRA teaching gun safety in school would be akin to me, and to many people, as Planned Parenthood teaching Abstinence Education in a Southern Baptist church. I'll let Joe Camel teach my children not to smoke before I'll let the gun industry's lobby teach my children how to handle their products.

Would you be amenable to using the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence's curriculum in schools?

Here in Louisiana, people born a few years after DH and I have to provide evidence of taking the course to get their hunter's permits, but older than that and you're exempt.

I'm pretty sure DH's certificate is in his dresser though and mine is in a scrapbook my mom made of my school days. That course and archery were the only two I got A's in for PE the whole year, so you're darn tooting I kept that certificate!
