These kids are just so cute!!!

The NRA’s “Youth Day” allowed children barely out of diapers to shoot firearms, and even offered a free six-month membership to interested kids in attendance. A day prior, the NRA even welcomed its youngest lifetime member, 3-year-old Elaih Wagan, whose membership cost was fronted by his grandfather.

Another story..

From the article:
In a seminar, gun instructor Rob Pincus advised parents that the best place to put a home gun safe is in their children’s bedrooms...

Great advice!


I will feel a lot better when the next 5 year old kills someone..At least it is comforting to know the NRA advocates it...

His dad should be on the cover of Time magazine as parent of the year...

Kudos to him for teaching his son at such a young age...

Glad to see it, hope they all grow up to become members.

Nutters going apoplectic knowing that guns are still legal, still being sold by the thousands every day, and their latest attempt to pass more anti-gun law failed miserably.

A seminar on "Home Defense Concepts" at the National Rifle Association's Annual Meeting, taught by firearms instructor Rob Pincus, has stirred a controversy after the advice that parents should keep guns in their children's bedroom for home defense.According to Think Progress, Pincus, who owns the popular firearm instruction company I.C.E Training, argued that because parents run instinctively to their children's bedroom when they fear a home invasion, they might as well store a gun in their children's bedroom.

The Huffington Post reports that Pincus has in the past recommended that gun owners must be prepared and willing to use lethal force when provoked. He said his training focuses on preparing gun owners for emergency situations in which they have to make split-second decisions. He said: "If someone presents that firearm, but they're not really willing to use it, they don't need to use it, it can actually cause more of a problem."


The video clip uploaded by Think Progress shows Pincus quizzing attendees at the seminar where a gun is best located in the home for the purpose of self-defense. He suggests with what many consider flawed logic that it makes sense to store a gun in the kids' bedroom:
How about putting a quick-access safe in your kids’ room?... Good idea or bad idea? We have an emotional pushback to that. Here’s my position on this. If you’re worried that your kid is going to try to break into the safe that is in their bedroom with a gun in it, you have bigger problems than home defense. [Laughter] If you think that the kid who’s going to try to break into the safe because it’s in their room isn’t sneaking into your room to try to break into stuff, you’re naive and you have bigger problems than this. So let’s settle that issue and think about it. In the middle of the night, if I’m in the bathroom or getting a glass of water or in the bedroom or watching TV in the living room, if that alarm goes off and the glass breaks and the dog starts barking, what’s the instinct that most people are going to have, in regards to, “am I going to run across the house to get the gun, or am I going to run over here to help the screaming kid?” And if I’m going to go to the kid anyway, and I have an extra gun and an extra safe, why not put it in their closet?

I agree 100%. I think the idea of putting an easy access safe in the kid's room is a great idea and I'll have to consider adding a pistol in my youngest's room.

We see such glaring examples in here, especially in regard to the pathological fear of liberals toward guns. If there's ever a run on Depends, you can pretty well guess who's buying them.

Who is afraid? You are making a straw man argument. Most people I know don't have guns because they are afraid of something.
