I am a member of York County Fish & Game Club and have long advocated this idea. We have many club members who are qualified instructors, who would surely give their time voluntarily to teach Gun safety courses in their respective area schools.
Thank you for submitting this bill.

Another, legislator, with his head up his, no no wont go there , who is talking what he doesn't know anything about. How is this news. The cost issue, is rediculous, as the Nra has offered free to any school who would take it. Free, gratis, no cost, with complete course, on just this topic, free. The name of it though, is Eddie Eagle course. Info can be obtained by contacting your local Nra office. Though, the name of the class offered is Eddie Eagle, this name, may offend some,less than .1 percent of a voting block, as their country of residence, is affraid, that, this name with the word eagle in it, And, god knows why this would ever offend any real American. Dr, please go to work on something more,effective to the American way of life, as it used to be and if you ain't got that, yet, I suggest that you poll your constituancy, as to who would like to go back to the honorable years, of say the ones that anyone alive can remember, first hand. A good one to start with would be in my opinion, why are Americans allowed to place another allegance before, US. As in Hispanic American, Eskimo American,or even Afro American. I try in all of my correspondance, to make this idea, timely, like didn't you mean American Eskimo, etc. Because as a disabled American Veteran, I am offended by this, another attempt to change our Native, English language. I think that you could find a few others around, if you really wanted to know what your voter's want. Well, time constraints, warrant my attention elsewhere, at this time, so have a good day Dr.
