Once again The Herald is spewing gun control in its Nov. 23 editorial, Guns and children. It’s a shame that a child has lost her life, but it’s not the gun’s fault. The Herald says a gun should be stored unloaded in a safe place, now does that really make sense? A gun in the house is for protection. What would you do when an intruder breaks into your home? Call time out, I have to load my gun!
The real answer to gun safety is education. When a child is taught to handle a gun, and allowed to go shooting with a parent, they are no longer curious about it. An uneducated child, when they see a gun, wants to pick it up and play with it.
