Details of EDU.06
The weapons like knives, pistols, rifles and simple explosives should be included in the basic courses. The weapon-use would include 3 things
For teaching the field use, the DEO should set firing ranges where their children can practice about 10-50 rounds a month. For teaching manufacture, maintenance and repairs, the education officer should arrange tours to sites where weapons are manufactured and repaired.
- actual use in the field
- maintenance and simple repairs.
Since people are naturally inclined to learn weapon-use, no significant rewards are needed. So there need not be any cash rewards. But the cash payments of students in their academic tests should be reduced by 25% - 50% if the student scores below (Average - 25%) in shooting. After all, no matter how much a person is knowledgeable, he will be liability if he cannot defend himself. This penalty mechanism will be sufficient to ensure that students are paying attention to weapon-use.
Advantages of EDU.06
- Makes a person capable of defending hilself. This reduces law-order cost.
- Makes a person aware about importance of military, defense, strategic issues and national securities
Draft of the act to create procedure EDU.06
One law needs to be passed in City Council (or District Panchayat) to enact EDU.06. To see the draft, please click here.
Now citizens can ask City Councilor to pass these Acts. But IMO, it will be wiser for citizens to first enact procedure LM.01 then use LM.01 to pass this EDU.06 draft WITHOUT any help from Councilors. To know about procedure LM.01, please click here.
