    Guns and children

    It's all about early education


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     henpeck of south central Illinois taught his children about guns and gun safety at age 6. He and his teenage son now participate in shooting competitions and attend a pistol league, which features different types of shooting practice each month. “This is one way of educating and building the self-confidence of using, shooting and performing the task of using a pistol around other competitors,” he said. “Safety is strictly enforced at this range as shown in the picture with a range officer giving instructions on proper use and safety procedures.”

    My kids were taught at an early age the responsibilities of the dangers of firearms.This take away being curious and they will respect what kind of tool it is and the proper use of it.With all tools they can be misused and as a parent it is my job to teach them the proper use of it.It can be fun to use but its still dangerous in the untrained hands.
