I'm not sure where I stand on the school teaching this, but I have long thought police officers should conduct safety training in the classroom. If you remove the curitosity you remove a lot of the danger.

Educational day is about 6 hours for most students, what academic subject will they sacrifice if this instruction is implemented? English, Math, Reading, Writing, History, Science, PE? I think K-5 grade students need to focus on the basics, rather than this- sorry academics are more important, IMO.

NP- No fear here- my kids did the safety classes- OUTSIDE of the classroom. You want them to have the knowledge, find a way to make it happen after school hours.
Sounds like a very emotional repsonse? Thinking with your heart?????

I think it is a good idea, as long as the person who is teaching is knowledgeable and not making them afraid of guns, but a healthy respect for them.

I took conservation and safety classes in school. They were under Agricultural Electives. My sister still lives in the area and says they're going to start offering them to 3rd and 4th graders as well, and I think it's good. How do kids know not to play with fire or not to talk to strangers? They make time for those lessons in school. A Firearm Safety week would take just as much time away from academics as Fire Safety Week.
