Wisconsin public schools may soon get exposed to guns in a constructive way. This is sure to anger the anti-gun cultists who have been attempting to create and foster a gun fear culture for decades.
Wisconsin high school students would learn how to handle a range of guns — from handguns to rifles — as an elective class under a state Assembly bill introduced last week.
Rep. Ken Skowronski (R-Franklin) is the lead sponsor of the bill, which would allow schools to offer on-site gun education classes. Its purpose is to promote gun safety and to boost participation in trap shooting, he said.
The bill would not change a current law that prohibits live ammunition and its use on school property.
The bill would not require schools to offer a class. If they did, students would not have to take it. However, the bill would require school superintendents to develop curricula.
“What we’re doing is allowing the high schools to offer an elective as a choice,” Skowronski said. “It can be yearlong, a quarter or a semester. It’s up to the school.”
Under the bill, curriculum development must be done in conjunction with either the Department of Natural Resources, a law enforcement agency or an organization that specializes in firearm safety or certification of firearms.
State Rep. Ken Skowronski has proposed a bill to make gun safety an elective in school systems.
