KIDS, CONDOMS, & GUNS | In Maryland, Democrat Gov. Parris Glendening has just vetoed bipartisan gun safety education legislation. It would have made Maryland the first in the nation to establish public-school guidelines for gun safety instruction from kindergarten through grade 12. Some teachers' groups and school administrators argued against top-down, unfunded curriculum mandates. But the same groups hardly complained when the state legislature passed a politically correct mandate for HIV-AIDS education in 1988. Gov. Glendening's objections show just how willing some liberals are to sacrifice children's safety to absolutist anti-gun ideology. The bill, Glendening said, "would create a clear appearance of the state encouraging young people to handle weapons and potentially furthering their interest in a time when we are trying to fight the scourge of gun violence." He attacked a provision allowing students in grades seven through 12 to participate in hunter-safety programs at certified shooting ranges, and he blasted another provision allowing local school boards to work with community or civic groups to develop their safety curricula. Those parts of the law, he said, raised "the specter of the National Rifle Association (NRA) taking bus loads of 13-year-old boys and girls off to a firing range for a day of shooting." And what exactly would be wrong with that? The NRA teaches tens of thousands of children and teens across the country every year how to handle firearms safely and responsibly...more.......

The Gov of MD likes to be on the leading edge of anti-gun laws only. He didnt want the safety class taught because the NRA would be involved. This is the same moron who, in front of the media, couldnt unlock a gun lock while trying to show how easy they unlock. This same homo-loving fake had a "love child" recently and will probably resign in July because of it. (THIS IS A RUMOR, BUT MOST LIKELY YOU CAN TAKE IT TO THE BANK) Great! Then we will be stuck with Kennedy Townsend as Gov. Keep in mind, that Lib. never got elected to any office!

I'm amazed that Beretta USA still has their factory in Maryland.
