Q&A: Guns In The Home With Kids Around

Q: What are you feelings about having guns in the home? My husband has a collection and sometimes it makes me nervous with my children also here.

A: I certainly understand what this wife is saying because for some people, guns are very fearful. To other people, who grew up in homes where the family was involved with hunting, target practice and that sort of thing, guns are not all that fearful. It has to do with whether you’ve been trained in safety with guns; likely your husband has and you probably have not. So I would suggestion that you expose yourself to the guns and learn the safety issues of the gun. I’d also suggest that the guns be locked up so the children do not have access to them.
