Two Houston schools cancel NRA gun safety classes – Houston Chronicle

Two Houston schools cancel NRA gun safety classes – Houston Chronicle.

I was rather shocked to hear any HISD principal was allowing the Eddie Eagle program into their schools because twenty years ago, HISD gutted the rifle marksmanship programs of its high schools just to get away from “guns.”  Well, now everyone is claiming they were duped and thought the class was being given by the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s Police Department, not the NRA.  And upon realizing that the NRA was involved, they cancelled the classes, claiming they are doing so to avoid the implication that they might be taking a political stance on the issue. HORSE-FEATHERS!!! How sad is it that the district takes the political position that perpetuating ignorance among is students is preferable to allowing a  non-political safety program to be presented on your campus.
