Bill proposes gun safety be taught in...

DE SOTO, Wis. (WKBT) - A bill that would allow gun safety to be taught in high schools has been proposed by some Wisconsin Republicans.

Under the bill the state superintendent would work with the Department of Natural Resources or an organization that specializes in firearms safety to develop the curriculum.

The course would be an elective for students, and schools would not be required to offer the course.

Caron Malin, a trapshooting coach from DeSoto said there are benefits to the bill.

"The more students that can be educated  and are aware, the awareness is going to be a key for hunter education, but particularily for gun safety.  The more students that are aware of safety for firearms, the less incidents and accidents that can happen," Malin said.
