Wisconsin’s “guns everywhere” lawmakers are at it again.
This time, they’re proposing shooting classes as part of the high school curriculum!
Let’s be really clear about the purpose of this legislation: Introducing kids to guns at an early age means more money for the gun industry. The National Shooting Sports Foundation determined that the average target shooter spends about $75,000 over his lifetime, if he is recruited by the age of 16.
And, in case you have any doubt this is purely about gun industry profits, check this out: Jim Sable founded USA High School Clay Target League “after watching the average age at his gun club jump to the mid-fifties.” Worried about the trend, he thought, “Why not go to the schools? That’s where the money is.”
AB 427 will have a committee hearing on August 3 at 11 am. We will send you more info about the hearing soon.
Right now, it’s critical that you let the committee chairs and your legislators know our kids’ education and safety is far more important than gun industry profits!
