STATE REPRESENTATIVE UNDER FIRE FOR CHILD GUN SAFETY IDEA.
State Representative Annazette Collins found herself in the hot seat after she suggested that kids be educated about guns. She says downstate, children are educated about weapons at a young age....why not in more urban areas.
"Down state they teach you that guns are meant for hunting, for protection..here in the urban cities, all they see are guns on tv..and they gun down people." said Collins.
She says she only suggested the thought of gun education to help get House Bill 48 passed. The bill would require universal background checks and ban private handgun sales.
But the majority of people who attended a town hall meeting in Garfield Park were opposed to the plan.
""Teaching kids about guns in the classroom is absurd." said resident Randall Blakey.
"That's like saying we might as well sell drugs legally..we don't want access to guns. We have children dying in this city. We're talking about teaching gets kids in grammar school how to shoot guns? That's crazy." said Father Michael Pflager of St. Sabina Church.
Collins says education is the key and taking a hands on approach would take away the mystery and allure of guns.

Ignorance breeds fear, which is exactly what the left wants.
If kids are educated about guns, then they will grow up to be capable adults with guns.
Capable adults with guns can overthrow tyrannical governments.
Government indoctrination schools don't want that."If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn't thinking." -Gen. George S. Patton

What a load. When I was in Junior High, we had a mandatory classes taught by the Game warden. Hunter safety, gun safety, and a drug class. I think those of us who are older and had this stuff can see where the problems lie.
