But generally speaking I don't want panicky civilians firing guns in any case. The correct default state of a firearm is "unavailable."

None of what you say say changes the fact that the Religious Right is vehemently opposed to teaching critical thinking and is using their political power to ensure that it is not taught in schools. Democrats may read tea leaves, but they don't insist that reading tea leaves be part of the science curriculum.

Don't panic.
