"If I Only Had a Gun"

A.X. Perez at The Libertarian Enterprise - good response to Friday's ABC Evening News drive by shooting of our gun rights. Mr. Perez agrees with them that firearms owners need more training. But he disagrees loudly with their conclusion. Mr. Perez thinks gun owners should simply get that training. [tle]

I therefor propose that as long as we insist on having mandatory public education six years (7th through 12th Grade) of gun handling skills and tactics should be a requirement to graduate. 15 semester hours of weaponscraft should also be required to graduate college. Degrees should be offered in general weapon skills and tactics and as well as specialized degrees in pistol, shotgun and rifle handling. This includes baccalaureate, masters, and doctorate, degrees. These degrees should include studying the work of Jeff Cooper, George Santayana, Thomas Jefferson and others. That works of moral philosophers should be included in recognition of the fact that the gun confers great power and "with great power goes great responsibility."

60Min had segment entitled "Gun Rush" where Leslie Stahl bemoaned the supposed gun show loophole. I pondered: "Tell me Les, if open purchase was such a danger, how was it that there have not been any masacres at gun shows".
