A Gun Safety Class
A cringing class is holding its breath and ears as Officer Rod Rankin aims a 30-30 rifle at can of water in a demonstration to impress kids with the destructive power of guns. ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
In the same magazine article, Officer Rankin is shown holding his open revolver before a wide eyed class of boys as he teaches gun safety in the classroom.
There is no self absorbed DEA agent, no Glock Foeties, no negligent discharges, no danger and no apologies. Instead there is learning, understanding, appreciation, and respect. Officer Rod Rankin is simply an officer of the law doing his job to serve and protect his community.
What have we become in the past fifty-two years? The world is so different now. It did not have to change. We can take it back. Protect a person today by teaching them about guns. Hands on. Safely. Effectively. Make no apologies.
I'm off to the range.
