Hello, Mary. Thanks for your post. Merry, Happy, HO HO Ho!

Hey 'SPAW, Merry (expletive) Christmas and Happy (expletive) New year!

Your point about eroding safety procedures is well taken. If you've ever tried to tutor your kids in Algebra or those "how fast must a train run to reach Atlanta with 600 passengers" problems, you know we lose accuracy and content over time. Gun Safety Training as taught by a state agency ought to be mandatory to receive a hunting licence, IMHOP. Gun ownership is a right guaranteed by the Constitution, but hunting licences are at the pleasure of the state and can be regulated for the public safety. Parents do not have access to videos depicting accidents. As you know videos showing traffic fatalities do have an effect.
