Hunting Bows In Elementary Schools?!


It's funny how things pop into your head at weird moments. I was entrenched in an anti-racism issue and it dawned on me all of a sudden, "Hey! There's so much going on with guns, kids and schools, but what about the hunters that take bows to elementary schools to teach children?"  Practice arrows or not, a bow is a weapon, is it not? Why not take an unloaded rifle into the elementary schools and teach kids hunting that way (not that I'm promoting guns and hunting in schools BTW)? What's the difference? Don't tell me a bow is safer than a gun!  A weapon is a weapon is weapon.... and what these weapons are used for is to teach our innocent, loving children to become callous killers.
In my 12 Most Vile Women Hunters, I featured quite a few women that actually take their bow hunting "skills" into schools and show the children, hands on with child sized bows, how shoot properly. Just to name a few: Michelle Leqve, Joella Bates and Jana Waller. Michelle Leqve teaches to high school kids, Joella Bates and Jana Waller take it to the elementary schools.  I ask, "What is wrong with this picture?

At the end of November 2012, there was an incident of a bow shooting at Casper Community College in Wyoming, the shooter killed 3 people. One of the victims was his father. Although this was at a college, don't be surprised if this starts happening more and more on a high school or elementary school level.
My guess is, not taking an unloaded rifle into a school has something to do with being a responsible adult (and hunter mind you). I think it's high time hunters were made "responsible" enough to keep their killing bows out of schools also. If  hunters are allowed to teach children at school how to use weapons, then I believe I should be allowed to teach children wildlife preservation (not conservation) at  school. I think it's high time that hunting was kept out of schools...period!

  1. I can't decide whether Joella Bates or the school that invited her is the worse of two evils.

  2. I'm so glad I do not have children I would be in jail. This is such propaganda all they are trying to do is upping the sale of this type of equipment that kills living beings. The sellers of bows and hunting gear are using the schools and our tax money to promote their tools of murder and they don't give a hit about the hearts and minds of children.

    Imagine having the misfortune to be born in to this environment and feeling that you really don't want to participate but the peer pressure makes the poor children go along, wanting to please daddy, so the kids pretend to be good little hunters, cause daddy is so proud of them when they smear the blood of their innocent victims on their cute little faces and daddy whips out his camera, what a family album that must be. Corpses everywhere and that includes the so called living. They have black hearts.

    Innocence destroyed. But daddy and mommy say God tells them so it's Ok to kill. The Bible says so. What would Jesus do? Oh yes, kill harmless grazing animals, then Jesus hangs the head on his wall and tells the little children, see this is the kindness and love of your father in heaven in action. Bunch of blood thirsty nutt jobs hunters are.

    Kids born in to hunting killers families, will eventually be as messed up as their parents. Killing will eventually be fun for them and a need. The blood lust will take over. Wonder why people grow up to be killers, here is part of the answer. Plus the mixed messages, loving the little puppy but killing the little deer or as a starter how about a bunny, but not the Easter bunny please. It's all so insane.

    This used to be called corrupting children. This should be illegal.
    I do not understand the school system. I hate that my taxes pay for this.
    Wyoming is a sorry state. It's beautiful country but this is backwards.

  3. A Bow A Gun An Sword A Knife A Spear they are meant as tools not weapons. At my Gun Safety Course we are taught that they are tools. I agree weapons should not touch schools but kids need to know SAFTEY on how to use a firearm. If they see a gun and were never taught to handle a firearm correctly what would happen. Guns are not the only weapon to kill
