Guns

I think that everyone should be required to learn firearms safety and gun handling in high school, including range time with a sample of handguns.  Both revolver and semi-automatic handguns should be trained.  Nearly any high school could be provided with these facilities at low cost.

Then the 2nd amendment should allow most people to carry firearms.  Criminals, by definition of being a criminal, don't worry about the law and carry guns whenever they want to have them.  That's part of the freedom of being an outlaw, you are not constrained by the law.

Those convicted of violent felonies, and those who are mentally ill and a few others excepted. I think if you want a gun free zone, that's okay, but should have the type of screening done at airports to keep armed people out and unarmed people secure.  What we have been doing is not working; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
