    “Gun Control”

    Having watched these tactical battles for decades, and interacted with our Young the same decades; I have learned that our side’s always being on the defensive against every hare-brained leftist scheme has diverted us from what is much more important in the long-run, the education or re-education of our Nation’s Young.

    As our USA becomes more “urbanized”, fewer & fewer families hunt or shoot; indeed, many urban families eschew even our long tradition of guns in homes.

    All of our children go to schools. Schools are mostly run by leftist union “educators”, virtually all “useful idiots”; or by well-meaning but ignorant religious folk who can’t recall “Sell your cloak & buy a sword” while preaching “Turn the other cheek”.

    While we busy ourselves with anti-anti “bump stock” proposals & magazine capacity quibbles, our children are slowly being poisoned with little note being taken.

    It is no longer adequate to only teach our own kids. We must reach-out to extended family children, neighbors, Boy Scouts, etc.

    “Take a child shooting”; teach them, don’t wait.

    Out time is running-out rapidly; we MUST go on offense and stay there.

    We must DEMAND that “Judges” stop neutering our 2A. We must speak-up, not to our reason-deaf oponnents, but to America’s children.

    Our children must control their own futures; we have to teach them WHY & HOW.

    So who can point to local shooting clubs that have active outreach programs for youth? Let's start a list.

    I think this will mesh well here and not "hijack" the intent of the thread.
    A good friend shared this video of Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin responding to the question of more gun control...

    There's some good stuff in that video. There's some insanely stupid stuff, too, but the overall message was a good one. It's best I not elaborate because that will result in a complete thread hijack. :)

    I don’t believe I’ve ever heard a politician speak and come so close to mirroring my personal feelings.

    This is a good program and is available all over. Find one near you and take a kid.

    I just bought a 22 rifle for my 11 year old grandson to start taking him.

    Slightly off of my topic, but excellent reply to an asinine libtard.

    I am from an age when we were required to carry razor-sharp pocket knives, frequently had guns in our cars at school, yet NEVER saw a gun or a knife used in anger against another person.

    As Professor Thomas Sowell once said "The recent history of America is that of replacing things that work with things that sound good" !

    Great!
    Please take non-family youngsters with little or no prior firearms exposure shooting or plinking with you.
