Guns Targetted at New Generation

152 posts in this topic

Did you read the article? It's clearly explained that some of the funding goes for this exact thing. Even the little quip in the first picture shows a professional training a young person.

=====================

so we could quite easily start a whole new thread on this, remember the one about janitors being trained?

No i am not being snotty, just can`t get a decent answer out of some of you lot without you getting out your guns.....some of you are so tetchy. You need to calm down, i am not a threat to you, just a little ol English person asking a few questions. Some of you can`t handle that, makes us wonder what you are like armed!

99% of hunters also agree. Who here has posted that they like killing for the sake of killing? Please point it out.

It's so difficult to get a decent simple answer, isn't it? :whistle:

I expected an answer of that kind that slightly dodges the problem... sadly it makes not the problem go away.

that does not reflect reality.hunting pests doesn't involve eating them, however there is nothing wrong with having fun blasting prairy dogs, rats, jackrabbits, cayoties....etc and other vermins.

You've made judgmental and condescending comments about my country while not trying to understand what we are saying to you. Yes, it makes me "tetchy". It also makes me "tetchy" for some uninformed person to make the same type of comments about anything with the same type of arrogant attitude.

You've been given many decent and accurate answers. You either ignore them or just don't like them.

Actually everything you just said there is very snooty and antagonizing. Anyone ever ask you over and over if you're cranky and you keep saying no until finally you become very cranky. It's called pushing buttons and you're button pushing finger is going to get swollen with those type of remarks.

HANG THEM! SALT THE GROUND!

Strange as it may sound, we hunt and enjoy the time spent together and compete as to who does the best.

Guess we are evil.

Whatever their reasoning for doing this in the first place I can assure you there is no mal-intent aside from pushing their POV as hard as the anti-gun POV pushed theirs. They aren't advocating violence or dissent or indoctrination of children. They are doing what big companies always do with SAFETY and respect for the arm at the top of their list. Yes of course $$$ too.

Incase you pull the technicality card I would add that indoctrination is what those who don't like our rights do. Those who do like our rights instill them instead.

Purchase not own. With the new laws ownership will be included. That means no more taking your son hunting a father son bonding ritual for some for generations extending back to the origin of this country. If you need a connection to the relevancy of the Constitution to todays world theres one.

Are you serious? You can't find something else to do to bond with your son...

They are going to change the culture....it will be a lot of hard work. People don't like to change...even if it's for the best. They are changing the cultures in the Middle East....it's not pretty and it's not easy. You can't change the US culture regarding guns all at once...baby steps.

No thank You. The majority of gun owners plan on keeping their guns even if that means armed resistence. Yes when you say painfully slow change I DO hope you know what your talking about.

I have been told and have read enough posts on here to say that it is down to the parents to show their child safety and respect for the guns which generally it is the parents who own them.

BUT.......................................i will admit when you have situations like this:

" Education about guns (all kinds) is preferred to the 8 year old who has no idea how to handle one and gets his hands on one and accidentally shoots another child.

Unsupervised children hurting each other by accident is a problem period."

Then it seems that someone else needs to take the reins, but these companies as i have pointed out before, are NOT training the children. But if they can train other people to show the child how to use the guns correctly (I can`t believe i am putting this) then maybe its the only option to take if the parents are not around to do it. But boy have you got problems over there if you have 8 year olds shooting other kids and it is at a problem "period" stage.

But, it is not my say on this, if you are happy with the youth workers teaching your children how to handle guns, then fine.....personally, my child would be out of that club before they could deliver their first shipment of ammo, but thats just me.

Carry on. :tu:

Please show me where in the article it says that these children are NOT being taught proper weapon safety? The article clearly states that the companies are providing funds for training.

Quote under first picture in article -

A junior shooter receiving tips on a military rifle last fall from an Army marksmanship instructor at a clinic at Fort Benning, Ga. Youth shooting clinics and competitions often receive financial support or supplies from firearms-related businesses.

I'm happy with a trained professional teaching my child to use a gun, just as I was when they were taught to drive a car.

Please stop twisting my statements and using them out of context.

But boy have you got problems over there if you have 8 year olds shooting other kids and it is at a problem "period" stage.

I'm sorry, are you saying that unsupervised children hurting each other is NOT a problem? Are you saying that there are no accidental shootings in the UK?

Most gun owners are responsible, caring individuals. Most gun owners that are also parents are responsible, caring individuals that teach their kids properly.

You haven't answered my question below -

You assumed that in the US it's ok to hand guns to kids unsupervised with no permission even though it's been explained many times to you that it's against the law and most people aren't that irresponsible. Is it legal in England to hand porn or alcohol to a child under 18?

There is your answer. The company are not training them.

Thats a joke right? where the heck did I say that? You highlighted something I did not know about, I said "But boy have you got problems over there if you have 8 year olds shooting other kids and it is at a problem "period" stage." and you take that as me saying it is not a problem?????

End of debate for me, that is the most stupid thing anyone has ever asked me. Do not reply because i will not be replying back if you twist things like that, thats sick!

No, the funding for training is being provided for by the company. They are being responsible.

No, it wasn't a joke. It was an actual question. Your statement implied that you haven't heard of child on child violence before. My statement was that ANY child violence is a problem. PERIOD. One incident is a problem.

End of debate for me, that is the most stupid thing anyone has ever asked me. Do not reply because i will not be replying back if you twist things like that, thats sick!

Well, I guess that is one way to get out of answering my question.

I don't believe he mentioned taking away any guns, but rather changing a culture. Having guns is fine, it's how guns are viewed and treated is quite another. And American culture seems very gun obsessed. Perhaps is more focus was placed on proper training and shortage instead of worrying about government tyrany and having loaded weapons always within reach would help make the general situation better.

So what if that's what people like to do? Big Deal. People have been hunting since the beginning of mans time. Who is they? The Washington elites? What about what the people want? huh? The last I remember America was about being in charge of your own life. You and all who think like you are exactly who WE are against. You want to tell me what to do or have some suit, who actually works for me, tell me what to do. I on the other hand could care less how you live your life and personally I want to be left alone to my own devices and free will. So long as I don't break the law, what's it to you? You know better?

I asked this because I don't understand why you used my quote in a manner implying the following -

1 - "YOU" (meaning the US I assume) is the only place that child on child violence is a problem.

2 - That the use of the "PERIOD" statement means anything other than any child violence is a problem.

I asked valid questions. You seem more intent on emotionally twisting my meanings to elicit a reaction you want than actually replying to my statements or questions.
