Gun Training in Canadian Schools?

As a Canadian the customs of the United States sometimes seem to lack perspective. As if everything is slightly skewed in the wrong direction and values are more for money and fame than life and living. Guns are a big deal in Canada, but for most Canadians it is about not having them or using them. Gun control in Canada is fairly welcome while in the US it is still a big issue.

It isn’t that Canadians don’t hunt or protect themselves. However, I have lived in Canada all but a couple of years of my life and have only ever held and then fired a gun once and that was during time spent in the US, not in Canada at all. I have seen the odd gun (outside of TV shows/ movies). I never thought to take a look at any of them. It was only in the US where I was invited to fire a gun and that was not while hunting for anything but during a holiday where guns were fired randomly, for entertainment.
gun training and control
This was posted to Facebook and though it was meant for the US people, it did not specify them solely, so I answered it. Usually I would read it and think of a reply but not post it. I leave the US people to their own thing, especially when it comes to something about guns and other issues which are so different in Canada versus the US. It is better to disagree in silence. Today I left a post, maybe it will give them another angle to think about. Likely not. But, this time I posted anyway.

I went to elementary school in the 1970s. We never had any kind of weapon training or safety training for weapons, not in high school, college or university either. The only time in my life I have ever touched a gun (other than a water pistol) was when I lived in the United States.

Violent Thoughts

I don’t think this place is going to work out. I have a pounding headache and what I’d really like is to have a very powerful, huge and scary looking gun to take upstairs and shoot those elephants living above me with very strong tranquilizer darts. I’d like them all fall down and then remain there soundlessly for several days. Right at this moment I would rather live with wild tigers than that herd of elephants. It’s been three hours of almost steady clomping around up there. Each time they drag around yet more furniture or drop something it drills another hole into my brain and down the back of my skull. I hate them, I really do. Could I just set the wild tigers loose up there. I’m sure it would all become really quiet in about 10 minutes. That would be a good thing.
