In what seems to be another attempt at discouraging firearm activities, the Department of Education has decided to withhold the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) funds from hunting and archery education programs nationwide.
Due to the attack at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, the Department of Education decided to pass the 2022 Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. This new policy required the department to withhold certain grant funds from school archery and hunting programs.
The specific provision in the act was an amendment to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which prohibits federal funds from going to programs that “provide to any person a dangerous weapon or training in the use of a dangerous weapon.”
Logical-thinking people would understand that more training would increase responsible gun ownership, but the anti-gun segment of our population sees this topic differently. We understand that when people think like this, they usually project their own thoughts about what they think “they” might do with a gun. Some cannot see that the thoughts in their own mind are not necessarily those of others. Many within the anti-gun circles have been conditioned to believe that guns are used only for killing, so they have a hard time seeing the topic rationally. This results from decades of anti-gun mind manipulation perpetuated on people who can’t think for themselves.
Democrats play the long game in disarming their fellow citizens and convincing the weak-minded to go along in their pursuit.
We’ve seen their attempts to tax ammo in what would appear to be an attempt at shutting down gun ranges by making it overly expensive to practice. They understand that if ammo is expensive enough, parents won’t be spending time at the range, and this would certainly reduce the amount of time they spend training their children. If the next generation of children grow up without guns in the household and without any familiarity or interest, they will likely be non-gun-owners in their adult life. The anti-gun strategy is generational, and they seem to be determined to do anything they can to reverse the naturally instinctive desire for gun ownership in America. In this case, removing all opportunities for kids to learn about guns only helps their agenda.
Under this new defunding scheme, millions of students will be denied the ability to learn firearm safety and will be unable to participate in recreational shooting sports. It would seem that is the idea.
In response to this new attempt by the Government to discourage American gun ownership, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, from New York’s District 21, said:
“This is the most recent example of a series of far-left pushes by the Biden administration and education secretary Cardona in the name of their partisan political agenda. Despite long-standing, bipartisan congressional support, the Department of Education has decided to eliminate the opportunity for millions of American students to exercise their Second Amendment right by safely learning to use firearms and participate in recreational, shooting sports.”
The left is very strategic in the way they attack the 2nd Amendment. This is just another attempt at their goal of a government-controlled citizenry. However, they can’t seem to get rid of that pesky 2nd Amendment.
