The Month of June is:
Project ChildSafe’s Friends & Family Campaign
Just recently, I watched my adult son working with his 5 year old, my youngest grandson. He was showing him the single shot rifle built by me many years ago to teach my kids to shoot. Of course it was cool to see the gun being used by another generation. But even better, as my son spoke, I heard the gun safety speech that I gave him over 20 years earlier. Now that is a legacy I am proud of.
My little grandson looked up into his Dad’s face and told him before his pop could even start the safety lesson, “You have to ask permission to touch a gun.” That tells you that he has already learned a valuable gun safety lesson and knows it will be enforced.
During the Month of June the NSSF is sponsoring a campaign the teach gun safety to the next generation. Get involved, go to their site and learn more about how you can help your family be safe with firearms. Oh, did I mention there is a chance to win some cool stuff too?
Firearms have given me a wonderful career and hobby. Respect for and attention to the safe use and handling of firearms insures the safety of the shooter as well as anyone in range. Think, and be safe.
