Teaching Hunting in Schools

COMMENTARY BY HERMAN LENZ, IA

It's illegal to sell guns, or liquor, or tobacco to minors. It's illegal for adults to "provide" liquor or tobacco to minors. Would it be legal or ethical to "teach" minors to use liquor, or tobacco or to have them "use" liquor or tobacco while under Adult supervision?

Why is it O.K. then for Adults to "teach" or "supervise" or "encourage" minors to use guns to kill with, while such minors are not allowed to "buy" guns?

The 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution was not intended to protect "sport hunting". The "hunting" at that time was for "human survival" NOT for "sport". The PRIMARY intent and purpose of the 2nd Amendment was/is to insure that Common Citizens would always be armed and fully ABLE TO OVERTHROW our own Government if or when it became too tyrannical.

I know this is the most politically UNfavorable thing you ever heard of, but read the Declaration of Independence.

"-when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right and duty, to throw off such govemment-".

The schools should teach the true and primary meaning of our U.S. and State Constitutions, and Declaration of Independence. "Sport hunting" is not in it.

There is something WRONG with any programs that teach or advocate "fun" or "sport" in killing and causing misery to anyone or anything. It's sadistic or de-sensitizing.

Anyone can be a supporter of the 2nd Amendment and gun ownership without being a "sport hunter". For "sport" there are plenty of NON-live things to shoot.
