Everyone gets a gun...even kids? NRA's new video triggers intense criticismSubmitted by meekandmild on Thu, 07/24/2014 - 10:15
The NRA's video titled "Everyone gets a gun," was met with heavy criticism among social organizations and parents alike because according to the author of the video, NRA commentator Billy Johnson, children need to be introduced to firearms at a young age. In the video, which was released on Monday, Johnson suggests the idea of kids needing to show gun proficiency in order to advance to the next grade.
“Just like we teach them reading and writing, necessary skills. We would teach shooting and firearm competency,” Johnson emphasized. “It wouldn’t matter if a child’s parents weren’t good at it. We’d find them a mentor. It wouldn’t matter if they didn’t want to learn. We would make it necessary to advance to the next grade.”
