A new piece of legislation introduced in North Carolina aims to give high school students a little extra learning: firearms education.
House Bill 612, filed this week by Representative Jay Adams, would give the state room to develop a firearms education course and allow the class, which would include “firearms safety education as recommend by law enforcement agencies or a firearms association”, to be offered as an elective to high school students.
The course, which would be developed by the North Carolina Board of Education, would not allow live ammunition in the classroom and would also cover the history and mechanics of firearms with a firm emphasis on the importance of gun safety.
I would love to see this sort of curriculum in as many schools as possible!

You’ve probably heard the 4 rules of gun safety 1,000 times, but never hurts to hear again…
Thanks to the shooter’s situational awareness. I question how the bystander was not aware of what was going on.
Walther Arms has identified a potential condition in Walther CCP pistols that could potentially cause it to discharge if dropped whether the manual safety is engaged (on) or disengaged (off). The safety of our customers is our paramount concern so we have voluntarily initiated this recall because of the possibility of a drop-fire occurring.
Please do not load or fire your Walther CCP pistol and contact us immediately to arrange to have your pistol upgraded free of charge.
If your pistol has already been upgraded, there will be a dot milled onto the back side of the magazine opening.
The upgrade will be done at no charge to you. For free shipping, please enter your information here, and complete the online form, making sure to include the serial number. After completion of the form a confirmation email will be sent including shipping information.
Please note: The serial number is located on the right side of the pistol.

Notice that the instructor fails to keep the loaded firearm pointed in a safe direction. Then also notice how there is a complete lack of reaction when the trigger is pulled, discharging in to the ceiling.
