I can certainly see some responsible teenagers learning how to handle a small caliber rifle for hunting. Then when old enough to qualify for a LTC I can see proceeding with training and qualifying.

But at 9 years old - really - we are talking about Texas and not the Congo, right???


People train with guns for many legitimate reasons. Some train for combat and self defense, others for hunting. A lot of people train for target proficiency which can be a lot of fun. Children learning to do things with a parent is a good thing, especially firearms. Its a great opportunity to learn safety, respect for firearms and a life skill. Children who bond with their parents doing things things they both love are going to be better off than parents. Who just do their own thing.

Sure, kids deserve lots of attention and inclusion in family activities - that's a no brainer.

I just hadn't realized that firearms can be a family activity with adolescents. Thanks for the perspective. :tiphat:
