    This is the way to do it. Kids are not nearly as dumb as adults seem to think they are. We dems scream for our kids to get sex ed from grammar school on, so why shouldn't we teach the kids gun safety, too? By the time I was five, I knew enough about guns to know they weren't something I should try to play with while bored around the house - and it's the kids who aren't taught this who tend to injure themselves or others.

      about 10.  If she had friends with her, we included them.  Never occurred to us that any parent could possibly object.  How naive the times were.  Its my opinion that if things are less of a mystery, they are also less of a magnet.  It is the taboo and forbidden that attract.
