“Of course, the bill has drawn sharp criticism from individuals who feel the course would encourage students to become shooters… or something.”
This bill was introduced in 2015 and I’m trying to find out what happened to the bill. If anyone knows, please let me know.
A new piece of legislation introduced in North Carolina aims to give high school students a little extra learning: firearms education.
House Bill 612, filed this week by Representative Jay Adams, would give the state room to develop a firearms education course and allow the class, which would include “firearms safety education as recommend by law enforcement agencies or a firearms association”, to be offered as an elective to high school students.
The course, which would be developed by the North Carolina Board of Education, would not allow live ammunition in the classroom and would also cover the history and mechanics of firearms with a firm emphasis on the importance of gun safety.
