In the USA, the Pentagon was called upon to curtail the program for extra-long training in shooting.

The command of the US Army should abolish the reserve training program for junior reserve officers (JROTC), thanks to which Nicholas Cruz, who killed 17 in Florida, learned to shoot, reports RIA News statement by the head of the National Coalition for the Protection of the Privacy of Students Pat Elder.




Recall that the shooting took place in one of the schools north of Miami last Wednesday. Its victims were 17 people. A student of this school, Nicholas Cruz, born 1999, was detained for committing this crime.

The entire JROTC program must be abolished,
said Elder, whose organization is fighting militarism in American schools.

This child participated in the JROTC program. There he was taught to shoot a potentially lethal weaponswhen he was in ninth grade. When he was caught, he wore a JROTC shirt,
he explained.

According to Elder, there are more than 2 thousands of such programs in schools.

The program was created by Congress ... so that many Americans know how to fire a weapon in the event of war,
added the head of the organization.

          Selling PP mines, RPGs, and flamethrowers is not that, you think, every second arsenal in the house is there, but if you cancel the training on rifled weapons, you can start learning the rules of setting mines and shooting from RPGs, plus sales ., This is not a rifle, and the new law will not violate. More military instructors, good and different!

        That is exactly what he meant. In the cult of weapons in society, the ethical aspects of the use of weapons must be inculcated from the pot. Otherwise, many turned and frostbitten military “arrows” are inevitable.

    It turns out that the cause of this tragedy was not the free sale of weapons, but a shooting training program. IMHO they mixed up the causes and effects

    Dust in the eyes, that something is being done. Well, they will train in private schools and shoot banks at the banks in the countryside. As long as the United States is jam-packed with small arms, it will fire. And the arms lobbyists in the US government will never give up the free circulation of weapons in the USA, because this will hit the most tender thing - their wallets. With the dominance of political power over the oligarchs - it is possible, but in the United States political power in the hands of the oligarchic clans is precisely located. Rather, according to the police post, they will be sent to each school for the state budget.

    Right. Prohibit the program, take away slingshots, eliminate toys. And then they will heal.
    And not a word about the arms lobby, well done.

    Well this is the right thing. He positioned it as an "anti-zombie flamethrower"

    So talking about the arms lobby fearfully. They can bang on the face. And to stop the training program and hope that they stop shooting is stupid. Does this Pat Elder really not understand this? Or just playing in public?

    There he was taught to shoot from a potentially lethal weapon when he was in ninth grade.

    What is a "potentially lethal weapon"? Pneumatics which over time can become a firearm? ..

    In fact, the first rule in any rifle school is "do not point weapons at people, not even charged." But apparently the rules of TB and the careful handling of weapons are not being taught now. And not only in the USA, but we also have inadequate ones.

    So they will, call and discuss, at most - they will accept some kind of "cosmetic" amendment and subside, until the next case.
    According to the FBI, since 2000, more than 40 attacks on schools with active shooting have been recorded in the United States.

    In my opinion, various types of rock explosives are also mine explosives, and now it’s not a problem to buy, not to mention gunpowder. So you cook up any mine with any fuse.

    You might think people like Nicholas can’t learn to shoot somewhere else .... They're confusing cause and effect ... Less would be the militants filmed where the same “Russian” man Seagal is wetting with packs of Americans .... And they’ll smash everyone with horror, and then start wonder - why are people so twitchy?

    Freaks! Limit the sale of weapons, as in the USSR! And those who want to sharpen their eyes, let them visit a paid shooting range. "An unloaded gun fires once a year!" Moreover, often fatal.

    In the photo, American schoolchildren with PSP rifles of 4.5 mm caliber and most likely the company "Walter." The shooters' poses are "correct" for shooting from the knee. Wrong only that they sit on flimsy tables. Which will inevitably stagger from every movement. I want to wish that in Russian schools shooting galleries would be similar everywhere. I had in mind the fire training of youth. And let duroshlep close programs. They are fighting with the investigation and not with the causes.
