Socialists Need Gun Control – Core Hunters Training
Gun Control for Dummies, and Democrats
If the Democrats’ goal was to prevent gun deaths, their bill would fail to achieve it. Although framed as a response to the Orlando massacre—itself eagerly interpreted as an act of terrorism, unlike similar shootings at Virginia Tech or Columbine—the bill would have done nothing to prevent that mass shooting, or others like it.
True, the feds had briefly put Omar Mateen on a terrorist watch list, from which he was removed after investigation. The San Bernardino shooters were on no watch list and at any rate acquired two of their guns from a friend and neighbor who was not on a list either. Neither was the gunman who murdered three and wounded nine at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs last November. Nor was Seung-Hui Cho, who murdered 32 people at Virginia Tech in 2007.
The Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Education (CORE) Program is British Columbia’s Hunter Education Program. It is also a great program for anyone interested in outdoor recreation.
The CORE Program consists of a practical firearms handling test, and a written examination on all of the following subjects:
• Law and Regulations
• First Aid and Survival
• Firearm Safety
• Animal Identification
• Bird Identification
The CORE Manual and the Hunting and Trapping Regulation Synopsis are the resource manuals used to learn these subjects.
BC Residents who are 18 years of age or older and who wish to obtain a hunting licence are required to complete the CORE Program.
