    Shooting a gun? Really?

    Why not? Do you actually think a  5 yr old has the capacity to understand what a gun can actually do? Do you trust them to be safe and exercise the kind of judgement (not to mention fine motor control) that accompanies such a task?

    This seems like such a bizarre sentiment. Please try to defend it with some sort of logic. Because either you've never met a 5yr old or you don't understand what guns do, I'm not sure which.

      I have 4 kids...all started target practicing with me at a young age...

      Do they have a weapon in their hands with me being farther than 6 inches away...no, didn't start that until they were about 12....

      Do they have access to weapons other than at the range...no I keep them under lock and key...

      Not everybody who has a gun, is an irresponsible meat-head, like a few try to portray on this site....

      Me and the family enjoy shooting....deal with it...not everybody is running around like their hair is on fire because guns exist....
