PRESS CHECK ED COMBSSTART ’EM YOUNGCHILDREN AND GUN SAFETY Few topics are as contentious as how to raise children in a household that contains firearms. To the fundamentally anti-gun, there is no responsible manner in which to do such a thing. To responsibly armed Americans though, growing up with firearms is as natural as growing up with a dog or a bike. But it can be a difficult transition for some families to make, and it can raise some interesting questions in the realm of gun safety. Should kids be allowed to “play guns” like in the old days, pointing toys at each other and pretending to fire? Are squirt-gun fights a thing of the past? These are just a few of the questions parents will have to answer, and outdoor writer and podcast host Trent Marsh will be exploring them in our upcoming July issue.
