I was determined and prepared that day to do what I had to do. Nothing was going to stop me from getting a shotgun from the family armory and take it to school. I placed a 20 gauge in the carry case and box of shells in a leather bag my dad used at the range, my dad supervising. My plan? Impress my instructor and pass the state sponsored hunter safety course held at our junior high school. Participating students were instructed to bring a firearm with them to demonstrate safety skills taught in the class.
All children should be taught basic firearms skills and the importance and meaning of the Second Amendment. Not that firearms should be feared. Fear is not a natural reaction, fear of firearms is instilled by those with an agenda. I brought a firearm to school and nobody cared. -13
