Agreed re: the questionnaires

Have you taken him out shooting yet?

Guns/self defense is a complicated topic. Personally, I think it comes down to a person's natural fight/flight response. From everything I have read. a person's chance of survival in a sticky situation seems to decline rapidly when they go against their innate response.

Kids are an interesting topic too. I myself don't know how I feel about having readily accessible firearms around kids. I've heard all the different opinions on the topic. I think it depends on your kid. I don't know if there is a way to ever be 100% safe, but I think you can be 100% responsible. It seems that there is no perfect answer. If you don't want them to get at it without supervision, it would seem that you have to store it in a way that is not readily accessible to anyone.
