Our daughter has been hunting with him (although no shots were fired), but, she has been, and will continue to be taught about safety around guns. She is being educated on the correct use, and that there is certainly a time and a place.
This is a discussion with many factors that are to be considered. Guns can be dangerous, and so can cars. But, I don't see any discussions about Transformers, those race track sets where the cars travel very fast (I have a girl and don't know what they are called!),remote controlled cars etc......and yet they encourage speeding and crashing into one another.
You know your kids best, and I am sure you will make the decision that is right for you.
