I like being Pro Active, I'm pretty sure that is why I started carrying a gun. The more people are informed and/or trained about firearms and firearm safety the better off we all will be IMHO.
I think a lot of the blame lies with poor parenting, I know it is hard to spend the time needed with our children but they are our children and our responsibility. They need more discipline and structure as a whole as it seems that there is no respect anymore.
Model70 is close, they need a swift kick in the pants sometimes instead of "if you don't stop I'm going to" warnings or empty threats.
I think it all comes down to people not giving their children what they need-- a swift kick in the @$$.
Today it seems as if there is no value on human life at all. With the internet, news can travel all over the world in seconds and all we see or hear is the bad blood and guts rape and murder headlines. What ever happened to truth in print?
