    Guns and children

    I began teaching my grandson firearms rules at age 3


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Jack Borsos is a grandfather from Franklin, Indiana, who believes that children should be exposed to guns and proper gun safety education early on. An action he feels will help foster respect and responsibility for firearms, instead of fear.

    Borsos says, "There certainly are no easy answers. However, I believe proper education and the experience of regularly shooting/handling firearms will go a long way to curbing accidental shootings."
    - taliaday, CNN iReport producer

    I began teaching my grandson the rules of firearms at about age 3. He was taught how to correctly handle a gun using his toy guns. When he was handed a real firearm these lessons immediately transfered. He is now 15 and from day 1 has been taught what to do should he come across a gun at a friend's house. Most important I have complete confidence in his judgement be it with guns, drugs, driving etc.
