Is the term ‘gun safety’ an oxymoron?

No. Don’t you just love short answers? The two words, Gun Safety, is not self-contradicting in any way what-so-ever. Any military vet will agree with this. I’m not going to roll out tons of text this time to support what I’ve answered with. I’m only going to provide the only proof I know. Back in the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s it was common practice for High Schools to teach gun safety as an elective course, taught by US Military vets. Students brought their firearms to school with a pocket full of ammunition, or they could borrow one of the five in-class rifles that they needed to share. In 1979, when the Department of Education was given power to add or remove educational requirements for classes from a Federal level, they did away with these important courses that taught firearm safety and handling. So tell me, how many mass shootings were there in those three decades? Even in the 80’s? It took a decade to undo the respect and knowledge necessary to turn a firearm into a sadistic tool for so-called social justice. We used to teach Equal Justice for all, but somehow, this social justice thing seems to be pushed by the very Department of Education that removed gun safety classes from high schools everywhere. How… convenient.
