    No can do. Unless their parents come and be responsible for them. I don't even take the grand kids unless their parent(s) come. I can only manage one of them at a time at the range. Got to have that one on one.

    The approach on how to educate people about guns, not just children, but adults is important too. If you start a conversation with "You're an idiot" you've probably already shut down their ability to listen rationally. You have to ask why they believe the way they do to understand where the misinformation came from, and then you can possibly reason with them with facts. Putting people on the defensive often shuts down the conversation to understanding your point of view.

    Truer words have never been spoken.

    Ask why. Listen. Ask why, again. Listen. Allow the person doing nearly all the talking (hint - not us) to run themselves into a brick wall where their own logic fails. They'll discover something closer to the truth and, because they discovered it, they'll believe it.

    Teaching about gun rights, outside an academic setting, isn't a matter of teaching. It's a matter of gently guiding people to discovering the truth for themselves.

    What people teach themselves, they embrace. We really need to keep that in mind at all times.
