The tragedy of the Aurora shootings is but the latest example of the fact that dangerous and violent situations can manifest in the least likely of places. The American people have the right to be prepared for such situations when they arise by having a working knowledge of First Aid, CPR, and basic self-defense techniques. Teaching students these fundamental competencies every year in school from sixth grade onward will promote safety, health, and a culture of preparedness. Though nothing can prevent all dangerous situations, this training will help curtail violence and minimize the loss of life when it arrives.

      If our politicians no matter what side of the isle they sit on cannot understand why there should be a complete ban on Assault weapons and ammo available to the general public. If our politicians cannot understand that there should be some agency that oversees the suspicious purchase if an individual ordering over 6000 rounds of ammunition.( Where was Homeland Security on this)? If our politicians cannot understand that there should be better regulation of the weapons/ammo industry and hold companies accountable for selling that much ammo to one individual without question or reporting it to some authoritative organization (Homeland Security), Then the very least we can do is institute a National Safety Week

      Every person should have the knowledge and ability to defend and assist themselves and those around them and this should be a part of the educational system
