This is a perfect example of knee-**** reactions, and people making decisions based on their emotions and not reality, and not the average.
I was taught to use guns at the age of 14, and I have several friends who were taught between ages 6 and 10. None of us have ever had any problems, we all act responsibly, and gun safety is the highest priority.
It's 2nd Amendment right, and I am disgusted with people who want to control laws that infringe on the activities of other families. I can't believe that any American would think they are sane in trying to control the people around them by abusing and manipulating the legal system.
The above is a failure on behalf of the parents to properly instruct and instill a proper safety-first mindset into the *****. They put too much garbage in, and got a big problem out.
Truth be known, I'll probably buy my kids their first rifles at age 10.
