Teaching Children About Guns

Keith Owen, of our latest 10-Question Interview, is keen on removing the mystique of guns to children and teaching them valuable safety rules (an example that many schools around the country should follow).

Or should they?

As one mother said

“They need to know that guns do scary things- and there is no respawning in real life!”

  1. I completely agree – I think if you miss something out, for example guns, knives, groundfighting, etc as common examples, then you only serve to create, maintain or intensify fear around that aspect of combat and general personal security. I don’t see how this can be a good thing. If your training system doesn’t incorporate something, see what you can do to fill in the gap. Knowledge is power and training is … umm … more power. You know what I mean!
