Marketing Bans Designed To Prevent Next Generation of Gun Owners

From NSSF:

California and Illinois laws that have banned advertising lawmakers in those two states consider to be targeted at minors doesn’t have anything to do with increasing public safety. It doesn’t have anything to do with fighting the criminal misuse of firearms. The laws are intended to do one thing – convince the next generation of Americans that the Second Amendment doesn’t exist.

Short Safety Video Can Make Kids Safer Around Guns

From The Reload:

Those are the findings of a randomized clinical trial published by the JAMA Pediatrics journal earlier this week. It examined how children aged 8 to 12 interact with a real gun after watching a gun-safety video at home. They were compared to those who watched a car-safety video at home instead. Of the 216 full participants, those who watched the gun-safety video were less likely to touch the gun or pull its trigger and more likely to tell an adult.

Andreessen: Teach Your Kids MMA

From The Free Press:

The message to kids is not “this is how you beat people up.” The message is “this is how you protect yourself.” And, as important, this is how you protect your family, your friends, your community. You use these combat skills in the service of others. You never start a fight, but when someone threatens someone you love, or even an innocent bystander, this is how you end a fight.

When To Teach Gun Safety?

From The Truth About Guns:

Yes, prudent parents teach their kids gun safety (safey, not how to shoot). When, though. The simplest answer I’ve heard comes from a retired FBI agent. “When do you teach kids about guns? About the same time you teach them about hot stoves, electricity and fire.”  In other words, when you drown-proof your kiddos, gun proof them, too.

Safe Students Act


The Safe Students Act, first announced in 2007 by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, has been rebooted by Kentucky Republican Thomas Massie this week and re-introduced with seven co-sponsors. The move would repeal the 30-year-old “no guns allowed” zone around public, private, and parochial elementary and high schools nationwide. Backers argue the bill is needed to allow local governments and school boards to set their own firearms policy without Washington red tape.

A Kid’s First Shot

When is it the right time to take your son or daughter to the range? At the Typical Shooter, James Allen has some advice on that.

With the first squeeze of the trigger he was hooked, he finished the 18 round magazine (or clip if you prefer) laid the pistol down and turned to me with one of the biggest teethiest grins I have ever seen.
