Gov. Bob McDonnell Brings The NRA Into Virginia Elementary School Class

The right-wing Virginia government led by Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) has steadily been pushing the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) agenda, recently passing a law allowing “concealed carry permit holders to bring loaded guns” into bars. Now, McDonnell is bringing the NRA into elementary school classrooms to tell children to be careful around this proliferation of guns.

Earlier this year, the Virginia legislature passed a bill allowing public schools to “offer gun-safety education to students in kindergarten through fifth grade.” Included in the legislation was a provision directing these gun safety programs to use materials from the National Crime Prevention Center as well as the NRA:

2. Our DU Gun Enthusiasts Are CONSTANTLY Recommending This.


They want Eddie Eagle's NRA gun safety program in the public schools---as if the NRA wouldn't use that for their own ends.

No-fucking-thank you.......
