Guns and Children.
From time to time, people ask me how I deal with guns and children in the same house.
Simple - I teach them how to use them.
If they’re not old enough, I teach them to stay away. How do children survive in houses filled with power tools, electrical appliances, gas burners and other dangerous objects? Why should children and guns be any different?
A gun is a tool, nothing more.

My dad taught me proper firearm safety when I was 8. It’s very, very important to teach your kids firearm safety. There would be a lot less tragic accidental deaths if people knew the basic rules.
