Do you believe this world is capable of supporting a utopia? You can teach children whatever you want and theyll still take their own path. Teach them right from wrong so they know the difference. Some unfortunately will reject that teaching.<quoted text>
Of course teaching children respect for others would guarantee safety from criminal behavior....if ALL parents taught their children respect for others they wouldn't become criminals in the first place...the trouble is that isn't happening ie: gun owners or most of them teach their children to have utter contempt for their law enforcement and their government to the point of resistance even if it means death, so regardless of what you spout, these parents are failing in their duties to produce respectful law abiding citizens. If your children don't have respect for those who enforce the laws then they have no fear of the law therefore anything goes ie: if parents own guns that aren't registered in States that require it then those parents are not being law abiding citizens no matter how they claim to be otherwise, and they teach their children this disrespect for the rules by leading by their own corrupt example.
Most gun owners do not teach their children contempt for the law. Are you really that clueless?
