Liberals are mad about this: middle school kids learning about guns Click to Tweet

If liberals hate it, it’s probably a good idea.

A Republican state senator has proposed a program for eighth-grade students that is going to make gun-grabbing liberals lose their minds.

Rep. Todd Weiler, from Woods Cross, Utah, wants to provide gun safety training to them.

Weiler said on Monday that children would not handle guns themselves, but rather be educated on what to do should they encounter a gun on the ground, according to KSTU.

A Republican state senator has proposed a program for eighth-grade students that is going to make gun-grabbing liberals lose their minds.

Rep. Todd Weiler, from Woods Cross, Utah, wants to provide gun safety training to them.

Weiler said on Monday that children would not handle guns themselves, but rather be educated on what to do should they encounter a gun on the ground, according to KSTU.

The training would be optional, he added. Parents would have to opt-in.

“This type of training would say: Don’t touch a gun; don’t pick it up; don’t pull the trigger; don’t point it at anybody. Just notify an adult,” Weiler said.

Students would be taught from a curriculum written by gun experts.

Weiler defended the proposal, saying some children simply aren’t taught all the facts about gun safety, and training could help prevent dangerous situations from unfolding.

“Up in Northern Utah, we’ve had incidents where a child walks out in the garage, picks up dad’s gun who just got back from hunting and shoots his sister accidentally last year,” he said. “Those stories break my heart.”

Weiler introduced the proposal with only two weeks left in last year’s legislative session. It did not pass this time, but he’s not giving up and will propose the program again on Jan. 25 with an additional component that teaches children how to respond to an active shooter.

“I hope we never have an active shooter in a school in Utah, knock on wood. But if we do, I don’t think it would hurt to give kids some ideas of what they should do if there’s an armed person trying to take over the school,” the state senator said.

What do you think about this proposed legislation? Good idea or hazardous to society?
