I live in a state known for it's hunting kids here learn about guns and hunting from there parents.
At least half the homes have here have guns.
In recent years use of guns in crime and gun accidents have gone up, BUT in that same time frame so has the number of people moving in from others states and they are the ones increasing the gun injuries numbers, at first the news would report if a family or criminal had moved here from another state they don't do that now but I wish they would.
Back in the day (70s and earlier) schools had gun safety classes and even gun teams and clubs, kids learned to respect the weapons now all they learn is guns kill and many fear them but also have a morbid interest in them.

But that is only a part of the problem, we need to teach them to respect people and life, a good man or woman does not rob, rape, or kill, we no longer teach our kids to be good people and until we do a gun class will not help.
