From West Virginia’s Herald-Dispatch:
_A significant drop in the number of hunters in West Virginia has left multimillion dollar holes in the state’s budget and one lawmaker thinks he has the solution: allow children to receive hunter training in school.
Children would be instructed in everything from survival skills to gun safety, but the guns would either have dummy ammunition or be disabled in some way. Sen. Billy Wayne Bailey, who introduced the bill, doesn’t envision West Virginia’s middle-schoolers firing real guns during class time.
“It’s a way to take this kind of education in the classroom and make it more convenient for young people,” the Wyoming County Democrat said._
