I don't get that thought process Bet. I mean i understand if you just want the right to do whatever the fuck you want to do, so do i, but teaching 9 year olds to shoot guns is productive how? Just look at that vid Brittney put up here, that lil kid is feeling so god damn happy shooting those guns, is that really a mentality you want little kids to have, instead of seeing guns as something scary?
At the end of the day shooting guns is fun. Going to the range is a huge stress reliever, hard thing to explain if you've never played with guns.
The kid in the video I posted has experience with guns which is why he could handle it. The girl most likely had little to no experience with guns. Age takes a roll in it sure, but something similar could easily happen if u gave that gun to a grown man with no shooting experience. Like Bet said earlier you need to take guns seriously and know what they can do.
Guns aren't anything to be feared. Where I live everyone grew up shooting guns, but what's important is teaching people how to be responsible with guns and handle them correctly.
