We have been shooting together for about two months now and have not had any problems. We always clean the rifle when we get home and she is memorizing the different parts. She can do everything but the recoil spring-guide pin-bolt dance. LOL

It is an absolute joy to hang out with her and do this!
Sounds like you are very proud of your daughter! Keep up the good work.
Blaming the NRA for the actions of murderers is like blaming AAA for drunk drivers.
