There are a dozen things in home that can kill a child. Most of them are under your kitchen sink.

Mr. Yuck was a warning and an educational campaign. Ignorance is dangerous.

I agree with you Sugars. But at the same time, I realize Inez's concern as a grandmother.

As a former firearms instructor for many years, I've HELPED train thousands in the safe use of firearms. I emphasize "helped" train them. I, personally have been around firearms all my life. I was taught at a young age (about 5 y/o) that a BB gun was a firearm and should be treated as such. I taught the same to my kids. They have followed suit.

Personally, I don't see any difference, safety wise, between owning firearms and having a swimming pool in the back yard except that firearms are portable. Being a responsible owner is the key. I taught my kids to swim at about 4 years old.

Living in the country had it's advantages. I was driving a pickup at the age of 11 and a farm tractor at 13 because I was taught how to do so safely.

My point is that training, responsible, safe and proper use of anything dangerous is essential. My 16 year old grand daughter just got her drivers license. She's smart and a good driver. But, I worry more about her on the road than I do when she goes hunting.

The thing is, I look at the possibilities. I tend to play the "what if game" no matter what I am doing. I can't control the actions of others. Some things are unpredictable. Having a concealed weapon for personal protection makes as much sense to me as having life jacket in my boat or air bags in my SUV. No guarantees, but any thing is better than nothing at all.

What does learning how to responsibly own and shoot firearms have to do with your grandkids growing up to be a doctor, lawyer etc ????

Your safe possession and knowledge of using a firearm could possibly insure that those grandkids have the opportunity to grow up to be lawyers, doctors etc.

But, I certainly don't think everyone must own a gun just because I choose to. I simply look at them as a tool for certain tasks just like many other tools. Handle them safely and you have no problem.

To clarify what I said about "toys" I didn't mean to imply that any gun was not dangerous, effective or have a purpose. I was referencing practical carry. I enjoy the sport of shooting just about any weapon. Long or short, .17 cal .to 45 cal, pistol, rifle or shotgun, revolver, semi or full auto. As a retired instructor, I've shot most except the .50 cal. and at my age, really don't want to. I bruise easily these days.

@ sexytension. Good choice in my opinion.
