    Guns and children

    Not a gun owner, with children

    My husband and I have never owned guns. Don't need them. I shoot with a camera. When my 3 children were young and their friends had toy guns, I gave in. I bought a simple toy cap gun so they could make noise. They ended up using a rock to get the cap to go off. They got bored pretty quick. Then I purchased laser toy guns which they played with. Since we had a backyard pool we bought water guns and I have to say the kids got the most enjoyment out of those. Water doesn't hurt. It was a fun time. They are all adults today and don't own guns. The right to bear arms is a misguided right. Just because you can doesn't mean you have to.
