Kids and… guns? Absolutely! Why? Because we should be teaching our children about safety – not trying to scare them!
Do you know anyone who A) has kids, and B) is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment – this is the book you’ll want to get! If you know someone who is “anti-gun” – let’s face it… they probably are simply speaking out of fear – this is the book you’ll want to get! 🙂
If knowledge is power, then in the case of firearms, “knowledge is safety.” Familiarity with guns for kids often helps avoid the “forbidden fruit” syndrome, which can create a safer environment. When they are an appropriate age, work with your kids to familiarize them with firearms, and always stress the importance of gun safety!
“Teach Safety, Not Fear!” – that’s our motto when it comes to guns. We teach them about other dangers – electricity, knives, matches/fire, etc… and that should be the same reasoning we teach them about guns… so they can be safe!
And let’s face it… your views may not matter when they visit a friend’s house, so teaching them proper safety will help keep them safe even when you’re not around.
IMPORTANT: Prepper Pete’s Gun of a Son is only intended to be used as a launching point of discussion with children. It is not intended to be a substitute for an actual firearms safety course. Seek out information and a local safety course in your area, and attend with your child to demonstrate to them the importance of gun safety. Teach the “Gun Safety Rules” as well.
Kids should ask a grownup to help print and sign the “Gun Safety Contract” like the one Charlie and his dad, Prepper Pete, signed.
And, as Prepper Pete says, “There are many toy guns out there, but remember that real guns are not toys! Guns can be very dangerous if you are not careful. Even airsoft and BB guns can be dangerous and you should follow safety rules!” Remember that “good practice makes good habits” and you should always practice safety!
