Hooray, kids and firearms.

What could possibly go wrong?
 
2013-03-01 11:37:41 AM
That's impressive.  My kids are OK with multiple weapons in a range, but I've never been able to work with them on that sort of competition.  Looks like fun.

So supervised kids who can show proficiency and safe practices while using firearms shouldn't be allowed to use them because something bad might happen?

Spin it however you want, Cletus. I don't give a rat's ass what your justification is for handing a child a goddamned death instrument. We might as well let 9-year olds drive while we're at it. Why not? As long as they can reach the pedals, right?

Besides, it's not about how "good" they are with the gun. So she can shoot. Big deal. SHOULD she? It's about having the maturity and decision-making skills necessary to HANDLE that kind of proficiency. Hell, how much of a national debate has it become that we clearly can't trust many ADULTS with that sort of responsibility?

I'm sorry. You're just not gonna win this one. Certain things should be the exclusive province of grownups, and GUNS is at the top of the effing list.

So your immediate reaction to my response is calling me Cletus. And we wonder why we can't have rational discussions on topics in this country...

My point is that she is supervised. It's a competition and it looks like she's good enough at this to be sponsored. This isn't a kid picking up a firearm and walking around town with it. She's probably been around guns her entire life and is probably more educated in gun safety than most adults.

And FYI, there are plenty of kids that race cars competitively who aren't old enough to have drivers licenses. Should this not be allowed either?

Funny, my kids knew how to drive around the age of 10 or so. They knew how to shoot by then too. Neither one of them has been involved in an accident of any kind in a vehicle or with a firearm and they are 22 and 24 now. They have the utmost respect for both tools.
 
2013-03-01 12:25:55 PM
When I was that age Mumsy wouldn't let me play with guns or weapons, real or fake.

So me and the neighbor kids would play Cowboys and Indians and Diplomat.

I still fondly remember the day I negotiated a truce.  The fact that I was able to slip in Tax Free Cigarette sales, front row tickets to "Annie Get Your Gun" AND 10,000 years of Uranium mining rights for Chief Billy and the Apaches down the street  was, I must say, perhaps my finest hour.

You have to remember that if you want to gun ownership less common over time, you have to discourage people from teaching their kids how to use them.  That's the goal of someone like MaxxLarge.

This was obviously not her first time picking up a gun and it appears she had some gun safety training.

Why not on a public roadway?  If the kid has driver safety training and is supervised, why not?

Ah yes, because supervised training and education is the same as, "Here ya go young pup, point this here thing at shiat and see what happens!"  Calm down dude.  You started this by wise-cracking the start of this thread.  You get to take the shots.

/heh, shots
 
2013-03-01 12:59:15 PM
I learned to shoot when I was 6 or 7.
Hey, Maxx... be honest - did you pee yourself watching that?

stonicus: His comment about driving is valid.  Should a 9 year old be able to drive as long as his/her parents are supervising?



no, because there are laws that prevent children from driving on the road.  just like there are laws preventing kids from owning guns.

i don't see a problem with a parent teaching their kid how to use a gun.  i don't see a problem with a parent letting their kid enter a shooting competition in just the same way that i don't see a problem with a parent letting their kid race other kids in an open-wheel car on a track.

stonicus:

Short answer: yes.  Long answer: off public roads, whether it be a race track, farm or dirt track through the woods, it is legal and fine for kids to drive a variety of vehicles under adult supervision.  Teaching them the motor functions of handling steering and pedals BEFORE handing them the keys to a 2 ton car on public roads where inches can change lives would make for better drivers.  At one time kids were given licenses as young as 12, so they can transport tractors to other fields.  My dad started learning to drive tractor at age five, I drove a go-cart before I drove a car and my sons are learning with a golf cart and lawn tractors.  I don't know about you, but it scares me to see full grown adults who never got down the basic functions of how steering and pedals work.  Example, old lady took out the drive-thru pharmacy earlier this week in Grand Blanc.  She tapped the gas by mistake and then panicked and smashed the gas pedal down causing her car to almost bring the overhang down upon herself.  Shouldn't the adult know by instinct to not panic.  I would rather a kid learn that behind the wheel of something much smaller and less horsepower.

Watching her pick off targets left and right and reload made me think one thing and one thing only...

She'd have a great body count in a school shooting.

Make what you will of that.
 
2013-03-01 01:10:34 PM
I don't see a problem with taking kids out shooting when they're the right age. Every kid has a different maturity level, so it's the parents' call. My Dad taught me how to shoot with his military sidearm when I was 9. You teach a child how to handle a firearm safely and to respect its lethal capabilities. If you treat it like it's a tool, then your child will learn to treat it like one too. Learning how to handle a firearm at a young age certainly helps take away some of that "ooh... guns" mystique.

The only problem is that it sounds like most of these parents are your stereotypical gun worshipers, so all the kids learn is to adopt that fetishistic adulation.

2013-03-01 01:12:48 PM
Boy that looks difficult, that spot where she walks up, points it, and then pulls the trigger and hits the target 6m away is amazing.

 Is there something I'm missing? Most kids do this with the TV remote everyday.

Can we show videos of kids doing impressive things now?

I see your boy has a Cub Scouts shirt on.  That is where my son learned how to properly handle and shoot both arrows and bullets.  Later when he was in Boy Scouts he learned how to use a hand gun as well.  Gun safety is knowledge about the weapon.  We as a family do not own any firearms, but we are all educated in their use.  If we hunted for our own meat or had any interest in target shooting we would own firearms.

You watched him getting shot at?  How old were you?  Taking a child along with him on the job seems an awfully irresponsible parenting decision.
