(Abilene Reporter-News)   Hey, Abby - I can't figure this one out. Should I take my young children over to my alcoholic, belligerent gun nut father-in-law who keeps loaded guns everywhere and fires them off in the house?   (reporternews.com) divider line 93

This is actually wrong:

 who seem to have never learned that a bullet fired into the air must fall down somewhere and could kill or injure someone.

You could fire a shotgun up in the air with small shot and the worse thing that might happen is someone might get one in their eye if they happen to be looking straight up.

"Earl," is an alcoholic and an avid gun enthusiast. He owns many weapons; I don't know the exact number. He has been accumulating ammunition at an accelerated rate because he's afraid that large clips will soon be banned. He drinks to excess and becomes belligerent and angry when drunk.

Wrong, I watched 1000 Ways to Die and a bullet went up in the air and killed somebody on the way down. It was on TruTV, so you know...

If you give the children guns, then they will play the role of "good guys with guns"

I've highlighted some key words for you, and assume you must have misread because you probably know what's what.

Also, there is a difference between a bullet fired straight up (that tumbles on the way down) and one fired at a 45-degree angle that maintains its spin and follows a path that looks like the St. Louis arch. Both are fired "into the air" but the results can vary widely.

Forget about your kids - what about your own safety? If I'm uncomfortable subjecting my kids to that environment, I'm not going to want to stay there myself.

Bird shot sure, anything larger could cause injury and the shot would have to be straight up the more degree you give the shot horizontally the more force you impart to the projectile on its way down.

Oh, puleeze.  All you've got to do is teach your child how to be responsible around guns.  A child taught from an early age to be responsible will never do something stupid with a weapon.

This is especailly true if the bullet lodges into the fuselage of a passing airplane, and brings it down in a fireball of death.

I won't be doing that again.

This also works with diet. Calmly explaining to them how a diet high in sugar is bad for them will ensure they keep away from sweets and stick with vegetables and complex carbohydrates.

I would be worried about the hearing loss of my kids, has anyone here ever been inside a house when someone fires a 12 ga.? It is deafening.

My dad was sitting in the cab of a pickup truck when the idiot driving decided to take a shot at a goose with a 12 gauge.

Although I agree with you to a certain extent; the problem lies with children not being responsible at an early age. The things you teach them when they are young, hopefully will manifest within them later on in life. But kids being kids, will tend to do stupid stuff.
Responsible adults will keep dangerous items out of the reach of children.

as an alcoholic gun nut who keeps loaded guns in various places, i now see why the nieces and nephews don't so much stay with me.  i'm ok with this arrangement.
 
2013-03-05 12:20:10 PM
Are children of gun nuts genetically bound to be gun nuts? If so then let the Darwin begin. If not, well, no I'd suggest keeping them away from the father-in-law.

Hey, don't look at me, my neighbor was convicted of having loaded weapons in his house, one of which was used by a teenager to kill himself while the parents were not present.

This is a rarely used (3 times in the last 20 years) law used to keep parents 'good' from what I can tell. The kids of the parents in question were all trained in weapon safety.

Drugs were involved, as the kid who killed himself was said to be hitting himself over the head with a 'heavy skillet' before shooting himself with a .22 rifle.

/Gets to have it expunged after 18 months and doing community service and family hand holding sessions with a therapist.

It is fine to keep loaded weapons around so long as there is access control and the person that has access does not drink.
