The Vindicator (Texas) discusses the conservative Republican politician's latest policy proposal: "[Yesterday] Representative James White filed HB 1142, which provides local schools boards the discretion to add an elective course offering that would give their high school students the opportunity to gain an appreciation of the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. 'The origins of liberty in our great nation reside in large part with the idea espoused in the Second Amendment,' said Representative White. 'As a conservative, I want Texas students to have the option to learn more about both this critical part of our Constitution, and the practical knowledge of how to safely operate the common arms Texans use for hunting and self-defense.'"
The article continues about this state legislative proposal: "HB 1142 would educate students about firearm safety and training, and hunter’s safety. All instructors would be required to be a qualified and certified handgun instructor, or a licensed peace officer employed by a local law enforcement agency. This optional course would involve students learning proper maintenance, cleaning, and safe use of common firearms such as: pistols, revolvers, rifles and shotguns. The bill would also provide for education on the history and importance of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution."
