Cindy Pratt Carrell, who manages Impact Guns in Boise, says she likes the idea.
"I think education is a great idea," Carrell told KBOI. "And bringing it into the schools makes it more available; it's not an after school event that parents would have to schedule for."
However, she's concerned about who would teach the courses.
"That would be the only thing that concerns me particularly — and what the criteria would be," she said.
Nate stressed that the course would be an elective.
"The kids don't have to sign up for it," he told KBOI. "The school board can be sensitive to those issues and that's why we're leaving the decision-making at the school board level, because they're elected by their citizens."
