I think it would be ok if they took a really good class on gun safety and were trained well.

Don't go making assumptions about how I almost shot my a$$ off. It's earlier in the thread and covered in more detail in other threads, but to tell it again...in quick time.

It was the first deer I had seen while hunting, and it was a huge buck, my fingers were cold and numb, I got uber excited, went to throw the gun to my shoulder flicking off the safety, and the rifle just slipped from my hands. It landed square on the butt and went off.

Yeah, it was a dumb bass mistake, but not quite so stupid as walking around with my finger on the trigger. My mistake was failing to maintain control of my rifle, leading to a potentially fatal accident. Lessons learned.

I had access to land when I was younger than that and carried my .22 everywhere. Of course that wasn't in public.

As long as the kid has been trained I see nothing wrong with it. My kids regularly go hunting rabbits, quail or squirrels on my land on their own. They are well trained and very safe, they have both passed the hunter safety test with high scores (97% and 95%). I think they should be allowed to own guns and carry concealed.

Times sure have changed. Me and most of my friends open carried being younger than 16. Since we didn't drive, it was unmistakable that we carried shotguns as we walked our way to our favorite hunting spot. No one blinked an eye!

We had marksmanship classes in school... Using guns!

35 years ago people understood and respected the Second Amendment. How far we've fallen for this to even be a question.
...
When my grandmother was in grade school she would carry a 22 rifle to school so she could hunt on the way back home.
