Wyoming Schools to Biden: MOLON LABE!


"Come and take them."

Back in July, it was revealed that Biden's Department of Education (Motto: "You Don't Need No Education") was "blocking key federal funding" for troglodyte K-12 schools with hunting and archery programs for their students. The Department found that the 2022 Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA) forbids federal funding for archery and hunting training. Because God forbid students learn basic safety and proficiency with rifles or bows and arrows.

ASIDE: Going to junior high and high school in Missouri in the '80s, I did take those basic classes. We were taught on very basic .22 rifles (I can't remember the model) and a strictly monitored and limited supply of rounds. When it came to archery, our bows were to actual hunting bows what two tin cans connected by string are to an iPhone 15 Pro, except our string wasn't as strong. But guess what? I still remember all my range safety rules and I'm a responsible gunowner who never shot anybody. My story, such as it is, is hardly unique.

Two Republican Senators, John Cornyn of Texas and North Carolina's Thom Tillis, complained in a letter to Education Secretary Miguel Cardona that his department was "misinterpreting" the BSCA amendment prohibiting federal funding for "training in the use of a dangerous weapon."

It's a stupid amendment in a stupid law but it looks to me like Cardona interpreted it just fine. Maybe Cornyn could try reading his legislation — he was one of 20 senators in the BSCA working group — before voting Yea on it next time.
