Kids and Guns Again

I read an news report this week regarding a child finding a loaded handgun on a playground.

The difference in this story if that this child had been taught how to react in this situation.

There was a time when swimming pools a main killer of children. How did we solve that? We taught our kids to swim. We taught them how to behave around pools, even if they encounter on unsupervised.

If you want our children to be safe. Teach them to be safe. Teach them to use firearms safely. Start early.

Demand that our schools teach them correctly. Stop teaching them fear.

My elementary school had a rifle range in the basement and we took safety and target shooting classes in phys ed! It made us ALL safer.

--We need more of these stories.
