The Republican endorsed candidate for Connecticut attorney general is advocating firearms training to be taught to kids in schools, in scout groups and in summer camps.

Avon attorney Martha Dean says if elected she would explore expanding gun accident prevention programs and rifle club teams in schools.

Fellow Republican candidate Ross Garber on Monday assailed Dean’s comments, which she made at a Second Amendment rally in April and stood by Monday. In that speech, Dean said schools teach sex education but “omit the most basic skill needed to exercise fundamental constitutional rights.”

Garber says the office of attorney general should not be used to give guns to children or promote a social agenda.

The two will face each other in the state primary elections Aug. 10.
