Solid parenting, Reb. Great approach. Clap

Word. My parents taught me gun safety and how to react to guns when I was four or five, and I've never known anything but how to treat firearms with respect and safety.

He yelled it loud enough that I was glad we didn't live in our old apartment with the landlord downstairs.

Bonus points if it has been dipped in chocolate.


Chocolate is expensive and a pain in the neck to melt. How about just the muzzle end?
Then you haven't met my kids.  You give them chocolate, they manage to melt/smear/wear and create various forms of expressionist art with it, no matter what solid form it is.

Excellent.
 
I've been mulling this approach with my kids.  I'll have to modify it a little.  If my kids are anything like me, they'll have the attention span of a gnat and the memory of a goldfish.  I'm thinking about once a month, I'll bring up the rifle, shotgun and the handgun and place them unloaded on the table.  I will tell them they are NOT allowed to touch them.  I will also make sure to tell them if they find a gun that looks like these they are to get an adult immediately.  As they are 2 and 3 years respectively this will have to be done that often.  When they get older, I'll let them hold them and expand the education, but the original rule will always stand.  It will be hard at first since my stepson has Nerf pistols he lets my kids play with.  It was cute at first when the youngest would always bring of them to me and tell me to, "Daddy cock it!"  Have to make sure to make the distinction between toy and real guns.
 
My buddy who used to be a cop did something similar.  He remembers it paid off one day.  His daughter (5 at the time) came crying out of the bathroom doing the pee-pee dance.  He asked what was wrong and she told him she couldn't go while pointing into the bathroom.  Apparantly the last time he went, he put his pistol on the toiletpaper dispensor and forgot to take it out with him when he was done.  That is the kind of result I want.
