For many years, we have not allowed toy guns in our home. It seemed to promote violence & we wanted to prevent those disturbances in our environment. However, as our oldest son approaches his teenage years, we believe he needs to be prepared to protect & defend his family. He does have the maturity and understanding to take on the task of gun safety & practice shooting.
Honestly, I don't want to squash our sons natural design for defense by banning guns. At the same time, I don't want to encourage a ultra-militant attitude. Does this make sense?
So, what are your thoughts??
