How to help someone when choking is the only thing I remember being taught. Never taught how to deal with slices, stabs, or removal of limbs. Oh we were shown how to use a bandaid and neosporin.


Ouch. We were shown how to deal with chest wounds, limbs being hewed off in industry machinery and had to mouth to mouth CPR dummies.

A peculiar statement seeing as it's us "libs" up here are the ones that have said mechanics class. My school also had metalworking/welding and woodworking ( complete with power tools and table saws ). Woodworking ( oddly ) also involved wiring, soldering and circuitry. You always got trades as classes up here.

Ah yes, "states rights".

Back when I was working two jobs, one required I remain CPR and First Aid certified. There really isn't a whole lot to it: I had to sit through a Red Cross lecture and exam every couple years. It isn't asking much for people to learn it in the interest of public health and safety.


Same, we required at least one person with first aid certification per shift.

When I took sheet metal and woodworking courses in middle school (grades/year six to eight, for the Canadians/British) I was required to learn CPR and First Aid.
This was taught through the first quarter of both courses.
While we were learning some of the fundamentals of each (woodworking/sheet metal) through written work, we did practical work in order to learn how to stitch up injuries and provide CPR.
First Aid and CPR were provided by the local EMS crew and a certified trainer (so we all were certified in both by the end of the quarter, as long as we passed the course).
We were also taught how to put out fires (metal, electrical, and solid ones) as they could occur in the workshop.

It was not until I got into college that I learned that this was uncommon throughout most of the country.
All of the middle schools in my county had the same type of course requirements.
Looking back, it was useful as there were a few that had injured themselves (only enough to warrant band-aids/gauge) and there was one year that the teacher actually cut half of his pinkie off (due to a student distracting him).
We had power tools, circular saws, TIG/MIG welding machines, and plasma cutters.
In hindsight, it is rather remarkable that there were only a handful of minor injuries.
Most of us knew how serious the equipment was (teachers would always demonstrate just how powerful these tools were), but there was always that one (or two) that would throw caution to the wind.

I would say that I am not against some type of First Aid training children around 8-years-old (or older).
I suggest that the instructor(s) would likely have to find a middle-ground between the "over-the-top" gory illustration videos and practical application (while maintaining the seriousness of the activity).

I look forward to the time when the derpstate no longer has the power to arrange false flag shootings and have the media cover for them and help solidify a fake story that totally doesnt add up but the viewership cant tell the difference one way or another.

Everyone should know first aid. Never know when you might need it to save a life where ever you go during your entire life.

Are you not taught first aid in school down there anyway?

No. I learned it as a part of my healthcare elective. It is not a mandatory course as I, too, believe it should be.

That's really really weird. It's almost like they're saying, there's a high chance you're going to be a school shooting victim, so prepare yourself for it.
I don't see anything wrong with it, as it is a useful skill, I mainly learned from watching zombie movies, "apply pressure", "wrap a bandage". But sometimes having a lesson about it can save lives.

Every MSM outlet reported on the New Mexico Compound. There is a lack of gun protest simply because no crime was committed using a gun.

This is a step in the right direction.

Our approach with teenagers fornicating is to teach them 'safety' around it. Why not the same with guns? Sex ed and hunter safety, FTW.

It's almost as if the United States is avoiding the actual problem.

It's just a allegation made by one of the foster parents that the kids were being trained to commit mass shootings at schools. Prosecutors haven't submitted any real evidence to back up that claim which lead to judge ruling that some of the suspects are ordered to be placed under house arrest with a 20k bond. Most of the charges are related to child abuse,and kidnapping.

People,especially those on the left would have been more concerned,or protesting over that stockpile of guns if prosecutors were able to show actual evidence of a terrorist plot to shoot up schools,or a actual crime related to fire arms being committed.

They should start teaching how to use first aids at 6th grade or early in middle school.
