Gun Safety and Kids

At an event in Texas, children and toddlers practice shooting with air rifles in a protected environment. Volunteers teach them how to hold the gun, where to place their hands, and about gun safety. They take time to answer any questions kids have about shooting. While some parents are opposed to these lessons, others feel they are a necessary and valuable part of growing up. This story looks at the different opinions about gun safety lessons for children.
