IMPO - I grew up in the cowboy and Indian era, we had six guns, bows & arrows and rifles to play with. Never did 'we' consider these things were
to be used in 'real-life' so what's the difference now - is it the games they play on these expensive -instruments- of aggression today?
My father taught me gun safety over & over again and then he kicked my
ass if I forgot some of it, but now I understand why he did - it was drilled
into me to not forget gun safety and special attention to gun use.

But...not every child is lucky as you to have gun safety 'drilled' into their heads! There is a difference!

If there's guns in the house it should be mandatory gun safety be taught.
I'm not saying the government should demand it- no way, what I'm saying
is it should be an elective class in high school, especially for boys.
Not ROTC either!

That's not going to help; it starts in the home! If you are going to buy a gun you should at least have the smart's to educate your family about the proper use and the dangers of playing with guns; especially if there are children in the home.....also, it should be locked up away from curious kids! Who leaves their kids alone at home anyway with a gun lying around???

When kids are big enough to pick one up that's the time to explain why they shouldn't!

Your giving in to the media propaganda. America doesn't have gun problem. We have a problem of treating nut-job wacko crazies as victims instead of removing them from society and putting them into specialized homes where they belong.

Not nearly half as many as the media and all the feral anti-gunners would have you believe do. It's all hype by the national media and Chicken Littles that gathers these sad stories from every corner they can find them in (on top of dwelling on them for weeks on end). don't give into the fear machine.

Sigh. And so the debate by gun haters continues! Our entire family enjoy shooting together, mostly long guns but our oldest girl is quite proficient in the pistol sports and competes on the amateur level at our range. Firearms are neither good nor bad, it's the finger on the trigger. We don't need "gun control" we need criminals control, and also YES it is incumbent upon the adults in the house to keep firearms properly secured, lest some juvenile take it into their head to exact retribution upon some bully at school even though bullies at school pretty much deserve what they get, IMHO.

That's not what I'm talking about; I'm talking about little kids picking up a gun lying around the house and shooting themselves or another person by accident, because they were not taught about gun safety and the dangers of real guns and a toy!
I can't imagine any 'normal' parent leaving an unattended handgun laying on the coffee table with little one's in the home.....that is what I'm talking about!

It s a fact of life that children can't be trusted. It s also a fact that these situations you are talking about are incredibly rare in all reality. It's all just spin by the anti-gun Chicken Little"s in America. Children are not in nearly as much danger as Nancy Grace and all the other scared of their own shadow blow-hards try and make you believe.

That's true I guess....I used to like Nancy Grace and watched her since forever it seems, but not so much anymore!
I wonder why the concern right now about the little kids and guns?

Good for you for turning her off. She is a vile,disgusting, and evil human being. She scares people into irrational mindsets and profits and collects fame from the victims of horrible acts. She is despicable beyond words. Not to mention it is people like her that truly threaten our legal system with their so-called news reporting. I normally don't wish harm on others but if she had a heart attack today we would all be better off. Well maybe not. Dr. Drew and that other Bat-crap crazy broad that is on HLN would carry the flame I guess.

It is true. It is not just guns. You shouldn't keep booz, knives, scissors, pills, hammers, hell anything a child can hurt themselves on were they can get it. If you do they most likely will. I love having the kids of the family around, but I'm smart enough to know not to trust them as far as I can throw them. They're kids for crying out loud. Manipulation, lying, and doing whatever they are not supposed to is the name of their game.
Then again maybe if kids were forced outside during the day like they used to be we wouldn't have to worry as much either.
