The bill sponsored by Teton County Senator Leland Christiansen adding firearm safety into the curriculum of Wyoming schools has passed the Senate now by a wide margin and has been sent over to the House for consideration. Senate File 71 would have schools offer the course either as an elective or extra-curricular activity for students in grades five or six. Christiansen says the measure would give children a chance to learn hunter safety before or after school, depending on what school officials decide. Not surprisingly, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department supports the bill as does the Wyoming Department of Education. The bill passed by a margin of 21 to 9.
