Guns and children
My Child's Favorite Bedtime Story
What I tell my child about guns is that his ggggggg-grandfather fought in the Revolutionary War so that we could have the freedom to own guns to protect ourselves from bad people. And I also tell him that there are lots of bad people out there who want to do us harm, even if they don't know that we love them, too. But since a lot of people are uneducated about firearms, they are scared, and they want to take ours from us, even though that then only the bad guys would have them. But they need to get re-elected, so it's ok.
