    Some simple, factual, information. No politics. Nice.

    No politics but maybe a little bias against those evil semiautos...

    'semi-automatic' doesn't get standing as an action type (it's tacked on the end of 'lever action') or a bold faced sub heading--the bias sounds like lack of personal experience on the part of the author with a good rugged semi-auto. For Alaska, a lever gun is probably more common I would bet.

    Nice piece, very matter of fact.

    Given it's provenance, I would love to see someone work this into a school in the lower 48 (with permission of the author, of course).

    Yeah, I was wondering about the semi-auto thing. Since it's written for kids, maybe they're erring on the side of caution. I also wondered why they didn't do the Four Rules or anything safety related like that.
