North Carolina lawmakers are considering a bill that would allow a comprehensive firearms course to be taught in high schools.
Hickory Rep. Jay Adams filed the bill in Raleigh last week.
House Bill 612 would authorize local boards of education to offer the elective course. The course would be developed by the State Board of Education.
The firearm education course would incorporate history, math and science related to guns, as well as firearm safety. The course would not allow live ammunition.
