Awareness: The First Step in Achieving an Armed and Polite Society
Every nation is dreaming of an armed society that it also polite. An armed citizen in America, however, is not automatically the most educated one.
The so-called “conditions of readiness” by self-described liberal Democrat Dan Baum in a Harper’s essay is a good example to this. He has talked about his experience with a concealed weapon.
Baum wrote that “condition white” is full unconsciousness to a person’s environment. These instances include being drunk or stoned, sleeping, texting while listening to music, losing oneself in a conversation or sleeping.
The so-called “yellow condition,” on the other hand, is being aware of and having interest in the surroundings. “Condition Orange” is being aware of a threat that may arrive.
“Condition red” is acting in response to danger while “condition white” unifies the society almost as much as does fealty to the Second Amendment. This means that the constitutional prerequisite to the right to bear arms appear more about responsibility.
Earlier this year, lawmakers from North Carolina came up with an idea. That is to allow high school students take gun classes. This way, they will be able to learn about the responsibility that comes with handling a gun, which can claim lives of innocent people if placed in the wrong hands.
There is no denying that America is awash in guns. North Carolina lawmakers argued that the next generation must be aware about how to use the weapon in the safest way possible.
Doug’s Shoot’n Sports supports this stand. It offers concealed weapons class for adults and kids classes for children 3 to10 years old. The kids class is based upon the NRA Eddie Eagle program where children will learn how to respond appropriately when they seen a gun.
The class for kids is a safety class. It is a fun activity for the kids because they will get the chance to bond with other kids in each of these classes. The best thing about it is that the gun store offers it for free!
For Doug’s Shoot’n Sports, offering free kids class is a way to promote gun safety among children. These classes are typically on Saturday afternoon but parents can also set a schedule anytime. Adults, on the other hand, can enjoy a Utah concealed carry class.
Adults, teens and kids must be aware about the obligation that comes with guns. The weapon is meant to keep an individual, a family and a society safe. However, it can also be very dangerous when not handled appropriately.
American kids have shoot people on a weekly basis going back as far as 2015. Guns are also used in suicide cases.
The Injury Prevention has found that only 15 percent of those who own a gun reported obtaining firearm training on suicide prevention. At least 62 percent of gun deaths in the US between 2011 and 2015 were suicide. Therefore, guns must be kept in a safe place and should not be easily accessible.
