    Great article, guns are meant to protect us yet some folks don’t secure thier weapons. Locking up guns not only keeps our children safe but prevents criminals from stealing them. It also keeps tragic incidents out of the misinformed media. Always retain control of your weapon, it’s one of the main rules of self defense.

    Strongly Agree! Guns are a right, but they should be treated like a responsibility. Parents need to be more proactive and agile to notice their kids’ adventures. Get some of the best ones here: http://on.fb.me/YguVdx

    My kids were taught how to shoot from age 4. both got to fire w/mom and dads help. we showed them what guns could do both with watermelons and live animals at times when we went hunting. Because of this both kids never touched our weapons when they were left out. They would come and get us to move them if they were in the way. Now all the guns would be put away when other kids were there because we don’t know what other parents taught their kids. And before any one throws a fit. Kids were shooting at that age less than a hundred years ago and respected guns and any weapon.

    Thats correct..Being a responsible gun owner and educating and securing guns is definitely the answer to such mihaps.Just as there is driving lesson and classes before we are allowed to drive..or even after voilation of traffic rule..a proper awareness and teaching od adult as well as kids is quite necessary.Especially in a country with highest percentage of guns..
