Numerous studies show that the more kids are exposed to the concept of responsible firearm ownership, the less likely they are to engage in criminal behavior, or drug use for that matter.

Guns are not, nor should they be viewed by kids as something evil.



I guess not but from me i won't allow it, some of you may but that's your choice in parenting..i won't knock it.

Do you believe keeping the idea of responsible firearm handling out of your kids mind based upon your irrational fear of guns is being a responsible parent?

Better hope your kids never come across a gun when you arent hovering over them.

By all means don't think that I am trying to tell you what is good for you or your children. I appreciate your response and appreciate that you see we all approach parenting differently.

I can say that the time my daughter has spent with me getting firearm safety drilled into her head has made her much more cognizant of the weapons and she was once afraid of them but now enjoys shooting in a controlled environment.

AGAIN, I am not denigrating you as a parent and fully understand your position. LOL....her mom is not a fan of guns so we won't even go there!

Cheers!

That's your opinion if you think that i am "hovering" or "smothering" you have your beliefs i have mine.
No matter what statistics say or whatever i don't think it mixes with kids i'm sorry if you find that hard to understand lol.

IMO a kid is supposed to enjoy their childhood and i will make sure that my 2 will and it won't be with any type of weapons. Anyways i'm not going to hi-jack this thread with another topic altogether here, you can resume back to the subject at hand.

Well hopefully your kids never come across a gun since they havent been taught how to handle them responsibly.

Hopefully none of their friends have a gun in the house, since we all know kids get curious about things that they are unfamiliar with



Back to the thread topic...

Please don't take offense to my response since I've read many of your posts and have found little I disagree with in any of them.

I don't know if you are a parent but the topic of firearms around children is seen by those such as you and I as, duh, whereas others see it a different way. In my mind, training them from their earliest recollection to be mindful of firearms and the responsibility associated with ownership is a given.

At the same time, I don't harbor ill will towards those who don't think as I do but am concerned that said children aren't being taught to deal with how to approach firearms with the knowledge and responsibility that approaching one entails.

I'm not trying to make enemies with anyone and if I am being combative, by all means let me know and I'll zip it.

LOL.....BTW, your AR-15 is showing..

Typical Rush Limbaugh.....in with both left feet.

It's a freakin' German company!!!



Playmobil (pronounced play-mo-beel) is a line of toys produced by the Brandstätter Group (Geobra Brandstätter GmbH & Co KG), headquartered in Zirndorf, Germany.

Nobody finds the TSA more distasteful, lately, than I....but really....it is a flipping TOY! That re-creates the reality of modern air travel. Whether in 2008, 1990, or 2010!!!!!

"Rush Limbaugh" and "over-the-top" are synonymous......

Oh no offense taken.

I am a parent, and I dont harbor ill will towards those who fail to properly educate their children how to deal with situations those kids will undoubtedly come upon on life.

I just think its sad kids will pay the price for the irrational fears of the parent.

I think it is telling of your mind set to so quickly suggest guns as an alternative to this Playschool toy. Playschool is for toddlers! Pre-school and kindergarden. The only guns appropriate for that age a water pistol, outside on a hot day!

Without getting into gun legislation, this toy is propaganda, and DOES put the TSA as the "Good Guys."

Or maybe, it could be used by child psychologists for trauma counceling for the young 'uns who are strip searched at airports and now need therapy. "Show me how the mean TSA man/woman touched you Joey."

I'm all ears. Please utilize your infinite wisdom to explain my mindset.

I never suggested guns other than describing how I shoot with my child after she has been rigorously trained regarding the safety of the use of the only weapon she is allowed to shoot......a 22LR.

At least make a salient point rather than spouting ill conceived rhetoric that can be refuted in my sleep.

I don't hand her my .45 and shout "Git R Dun". For God's sake, step back and think for a second prior to making unfounded accusations.

You do realize a firearm is nothing more than a tool, right?

I teach my child the proper and safe use of my chop saws, chain saws, table saw, band saw, nail guns, lawn tractor, axes, adz, etc....

Wake up to reality would you?

The fact that you've chosen to shelter your children from reality is your decision. I have chosen to enlighten mine regarding all of the tools I have, how to use them safely and what each tool is capable of accomplishing. Your kids will know nothing and be extremely dangerous to themselves and anyone nearby around any of the tools I mentioned previously. My child will be able to teach yours on their proper use and the safety requirement of their use...since apparently you have chosen not to do so.

You do realize that this toy, that we are discussing, is meant for pre-schoolers and kindergardeners, don't you? Planting a garden and teaching children at that age to fish, yeah. But rigorous gun training? Maybe at 9 or 10, not little kids. Sure, they watch you shoot, and gain a healthy respect for the danger, but teaching them to shoot at that age should be limited to water pistols.

IMHO

My favorite memories of time with my father were hunting, fishing, and shooting..

I grew up in the city, and if we wanted to do something outsoorsy, (riding horses was my pastime), we had to drive far. I used to like summer camp, where I learned shooting, archery and 4H. Good times.

Also, my granddad was an avid hunter and took us on fishing trips to northern US America and Canada. I remember fishing in Pugit Sound and hooking biggun. It was a shark. I was 6. My grandad pulled his shotgun out and killed that shark before, I knew it was a shark! The lil boat flew back about 5 feet, and we almost fell over board.

I still think shooting any firearm should be done by an adult, or totally supervised by an adult, until certain criteria has been satisfied.. That would be up to a licenser? How does one know when a minor is ready to carry a fire arm? Sorry if off post. Don't want to highjack this thread.

I just don't see the link from a PLAYSKOOL toy, to a recomendation of taking your child shooting......

The whole premise behind Playmobil toys is to familiarize the child with the realities of life through play

Social conditioning at its finest. Everybody play "Submit to full cavity search and removal of rights!"

Like the pictures you added to the mix. Lets aspire to flip animal-like-product patties at our local McFrontal-Lobotomy!

Whoever buys their kids these "toys" clearly isn't thinking clearly.

Toys like this should let you know that these things are here to stay and TPTB want to indoctrinate people at the earliest age possible so that they will simply accept it, without question,when they get older.

Welcome to your new world. I am so glad I will not live enough to see the future these kids,who are playing with these toys,will be living in. I would urge everyone to simply stop having kids anyway. There's no reasonable way of life future for them to look forward to.
