I don't think firearm classes in school are going to affect anything. I don't know why this is proposed so often - how many shootings exactly are prevented because the shooter had insufficient training? It just doesn't make any sense to me. Most shootings in this country aren't mass shootings and don't have anything to do with school, nor do they have anything to do with the criminals not respecting firearms or not knowing how to use them properly.

I also don't think it's accurate to say that "arms manufacturers and dealers have bought congress." Their lobby is an absolute pipsqueak compared to others like the pharmaceutical, insurance, and real estate lobbies. Like "grade-school T-ball versus the New York Yankees," as Walter White might put it. They do exert some influence but it's overstated.
