“Kids who are taught about guns, don’t feel the need to sneak around and play with them.”
I believe this is absolutely, one hundred percent true!
My dad taught me gun safety when I was very young.
This is also true for my husband with his father.
Guns are not a part of our every day life, but we do have them in our house.
Zach and I both believe that kids cannot be sheltered from guns, whether you agree or not, they are a part of our culture and society. Both good and bad. Why let your kids learn about something so critical from television shows and video games? I feel it is important to teach your kids about gun safety so they are not curious and decide to figure things out on their own. That is where accidents happen.
The other day we got the BB Gun out to go over a few basics with Zoie.
Once we covered (in detail) the safety of carrying and holding a gun, target practice began.
There is nothing better or more fun to shoot at than a can.
But since we just took the recycling in, all I had was a Finding Dory cereal box from Costco. Sorry Dory.
Zoie had a great time trying to line up her sights.
Her aim isn’t too bad either, that dead center shot at Dory was hers.
Next time we’ll head to the woods and learn to shoot a 22. She’ll love that!
