Many anti-gun liberals use the statistics and photos of kids who are accidentally shot in the home when they find a loaded gun to push their gun-control agenda. However, the problem isn’t guns, but the lack of parents’ properly teaching their kids gun safety. Some ask how early one should start teaching kids about gun safety and a former FBI agent provides a good answer.
Here’s an inconvenient truth: firearm safety education saves lives. However, some people fear them and don’t want anything to do with teaching their kids gun safety. At the same time, others agonize over when to start teaching firearm safety in their home. What’s the right time to start teaching your kids to respect firearms?
Yes, prudent parents teach their kids gun safety. When though. The simplest answer I’ve heard comes from a retired FBI agent. “When do you teach kids about guns? About the same time you teach them about hot stoves, electricity and fire.” In other words, when you drown proof your kiddos, gun proof them too.
The National Rifle Association’s Eddie Eagle program distills firearm safety for kids down to a few simple concepts: …
I grew up in a home with loaded guns and my parents began teaching us kids from very early on. I was taught not to touch or play with the guns before I was old enough to pick them up and we never ever touched them because we knew the consequences if we did. Too many of today’s parents don’t spank and don’t use any real punishment or discipline to teach and that’s reason we hear about kids getting hurt and killed by playing with guns. It’s the parents’ fault, not the guns. May be liberals should ban some people from being parents.
