I normally don’t publish letters to the editor, because most of them don’t often have any particular insight, and are often factually challenged.Â Every once in a while though, I have to make an exception. Because this guy was apparently a raging sociopath of a four year old, apparently the rest of us aren’t responsible enough to teach gun safety to our children.
Five-year-olds today are no more mature than I was, and the NRA thinks thatâ€™s the ideal time to begin teaching children about guns.
You gotta be kidding me.
I’m pretty sure as a five year old I knew not to hurt other children. Also, no one is talking about handing guns, BB or otherwise, to five year olds and telling them to go to town. But five is not too soon to talk to kids about gun safety. In fact, if you have guns in the house, you have a responsibility to teach your kids to be safe around them.
