    Guns and children

    mom with guns

    Ever since the day I brought my first gun in the house, my son ethan has been no stranger to them, he is 7 and he now has his own .22 . I feel that education is a life saver when it comes to guns. it starts with fear, as a child, then comes curiosity then comes mistakes. if you educate a child enough teach them to respect the gun, obviously be careful and let the child hold them, take them out and let them watch you shoot, I think these steps will solve some problems. there will always be guns in my home, but as long as they are there, there will be a constant education, guns are not bad, people and mental illness are bad, its about time people should figure out the difference.
