The Herald's Jan. 15 editorial advocated expanded firearms training, for which the editorial board is commended.
I suggest that the Herald's editorial position be expanded to make firearms safety training a high school graduation requirement. This ensures that those do wish to handle firearms, and those who do not but may in the future, are trained to safely handle them. Perhaps the training could be made a part of the course on the Constitution, if one is taught as a requirement for graduation.
