he has to be 18 to be man enough to hunt for himself!!!
that quote is the best!!!
we want marksmen,so the gang bangers dont waste all those rounds on drive bys!

those of us who have been handling guns since childhood can testify, the earlier you learn the better. Its not like teaching kids the extreme importance of gun safety is wrong. It is a really inspiring sight to see a 10 year old handle a rifle like a soldier and respect and handle it's power like a mini-man, instead of throwing tantrums over toys and video games and stuck in a 24/7 lala land. Not saying kids who don't shoot have that mentality, just saying kids need something to concentrate on because we can see the results all over the web of what happens when little ones are allowed to be the all whiny brat, daily!

I think it's a fantastic idea. Firearm ownership in this country is part of the national heritage and it's a Constitutional right. Children raised with proper knowledge of firearms are less at risk of both accidental and deliberate discharges. Respawn points in the real world are hard to come by.
That being said ... this comes to mind
