TEApublican Logic 101: We can’t teach sex-ed because it will cause kids to have sex too early, but we can teach “gun-safety” to first-graders.
State Sen. Dan Brown (R-MO) told a Senate committee Tuesday that the proposed course would teach first-graders what to do if they found a weapon and was designed to prevent them from accidentally shooting themselves or someone else, the Associated Press reported. Brown’s legislation specifies a curriculum which includes “Eddie Eagle” cartoons designed by the National Rifle Association. The legislation was filed a day before the Newtown, Conn. mass shooting that left 20 children dead.
Because there’s nothing the NRA wants more than to keep kids safe as evidenced by their anti-background check, anti-assault weapons ban and anti-ANY gun-safety legislation at all. Apparently, the only way the NRA will support “gun-safety” is if it entails putting a gun directly into a kid’s hand. Gee, I wonder if they have any ulterior motives?
And, the understatement award of the year goes to, goofy Fox peroxide-blonde talking head #342 for saying:
“It might shock some of you to see a 5-year-old shooting a H&K MP5 9mm.”
It shocks me that you’re shocked that I’m shocked.
