Gun-Ed and Sex-Ed

Posted on the 17 May 2011 by Mikeb302000
From a wonderful op-ed in the Salt Lake Tribune.
How is it that any conservative can make such pro-education claims for guns and then fight any sort of sex-education classes in public schools?
I'm the opposite and these are my reasons.
Teaching gun safety presumes gun use. My belief is this is a bad thing in many cases.
Teaching sex-education does not presume sexual activity. In fact abstinence or waiting till teens are a bit older can be part of the program. In addition there would be many health related and anatomical aspects to the lessons.
Therefore, I say no to gun-ed and yes to sex-ed.   What's your opinion?
