There is no doubt good safety practices need to be taught at a young age. While I can’t support this with any real data I believe if more young folks learned gun safety and actually shot real guns at real targets we would have less violence these days.
Oh, and while Dad and Granddad had a lot to do with it the Boy Scouts really taught me a lot about disciplined shooting and gun safety. The other guys would take their “spendin money” and go buy ice cream during afternoon break time, but not me I picked up another fifty rounds and headed to the range for open shooting time.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
