Middle school children in Iowa to be given classes on how to handle guns after teenager died in accidental shooting

An Iowa county is planning on offering its middle school students hands-on lessons in how to use firearms after a 15-year-old boy died in an accidental shooting.

Two middle schools in Butler County, Iowa will receive week-long classes that will train students on a variety of survival skills, including gun safety beginning in the Spring.

District superintendent Joel Foster, who implemented the plans, believes he is doing the ‘right thing for the community’ by introducing the controversial tutorials.

An excellent idea.
