Always remember police are not safety experts. Many of them are safety hazards. Don't allow the newsmedia to bullshit you into doing something stupid with your gun.

Kids and loaded guns don't mix, but guns can be locked and hidden to render them useless from Intruders and then leave your kids defenseless.

The best parents are armed parents. Armed parents can protect their kids the best.

No such thing as accidental shootings. Only NEGLIGENT DISCHARGES.

When normal safety procedures are followed, nobody gets shot. You can not liken this to, say motor vehicle accidents. It is inherently risky to share the roads with the multitude of drivers of all ilks and dispositions.

With keeping firearms, there are only YOU and a few rules to follow, it doesn't depend on anything else except THAT.

EVERY firearm "accident" is directly traceable to SOMEONE who neglected to do something right. Therefore no accident; nothing fell from the sky or blasted through your wall while you were sleeping.

My father always had guns laying around, and they we're all loaded, But he taught me and my brothers and sisters responsibility no to mess with them unless he allowed us too.That's what is comes down to teaching your kids right from wrong, I grew up watching cowboys and indiana movies and the gangster movies with bogart and edward g robinson, and the three stooges. gun locks are a joke, so you lock you're gun, and the criminal never does.more liberal feel good laws that they will eventually say if you don't lock the gun when in not use, you face a fine or jail time.soon they will say if you have kids under a certain age, we can't sell you a gun .It's coming to that watch and see.they wanted a few years back to make anyone who buys a gun legally to have to go to a gun range and prove they could fire and load and store the gun safely lol, yet again the criminals don't have to do any of those things, had they made that the new law.the same guns involved in those shootings of kids shooting other kids very easily could've came from someone else home.

So if that same child found the gun in the alley or street that was stolen by some thief who tossed it away. should the true owner a law abiding citiizen be held liable because their gun was stolen, the kid who killed the other one was his half brother, what if he used as knife on him, or strangled him to death, would parents still be held liable because the son was jealous of his brother sort of like caine and able story.people kill people.rage kills people, hate kills people. before any guns ever made or bombs, people have killed people out of jealousy, rage, and envy.there was a case here in indiana about 5 teenage girls beat, tortured, and set fire ona 11 yr old girl, the odleest was jealous of her, she thought she was htting on her lesbian gf. all they sued was their fist, a tire iron, and gasoline. who do we hold liable, their parents also for lending them the car.

Your Mom said you were the source of her diarrhea cramps and if she hadn't turned to look down after wiping and before flushing, you wouldn't have seen your 1st birthday.
