Stop Giving Children Loaded Guns
Organized by: Rich Brunelle
There are organizations that offer free trigger locks to the public, but seldom do they approach the lower income or rural areas. I would like to give some lectures about gun safety and distribute trigger locks for free to these people. Cheap trigger locks can be purchased for around $10.00, good trigger locks for around $20.00, quantity discount purchase a little less. Somebody has to stop people from leaving loaded firearms where kids can get to them and kill themselves or others. Somebody has to stop people from allowing children that do not even understand what a gun is from finding one and killing someone with it.
How many school shootings would have been thwarted were the children not able to have access to a usable firearm? I am pro "Right to Bear Arms" and yes children should be allowed to own firearms. Teenagers should be allowed to own cars. But, neither should be under the control of the child without at least some sort of supervision. This is not regulation by the Government, but responsibility of a parent. And, it should remain the responsibility of the parent. But, who is talking to parents and telling them they need to accept such responsibility if they are going to give their children firearms? Who is showing them the pictures of the children killed? SOmebody has to reach out to these people.
I do not know how successful I can be, but I am damn willing to give it a try. I do not care if it requires I go door to door talking to Mothers in effort to get them to insist if their friends and family have guns to secure the damn things. I am an ex Peace Officer and I know firearms. I believe this is a just cause to act upon. If it saves a single life it is worth my effort and your money.
