I must have been a late starter, I only got my Daisy at 12, & my 22 at 14. That old single shot Winchester taught me to be a god shot. The extractor was shot, so I had to dig the spent cartridge out with my pocket knife. Had to make the first shot count, as there was no chance of a second.

Then as a platoon commander in the high school cadet corps, I was overseeing a platoon of 30 kids on the rifle range at 15.

A slightly different time, we used to issue the WW11 303s to the cadets at the Thursday afternoon cadet parade. They took them home walking, on the school busses or riding their bikes, to bring them to the range on Saturday for a shoot. Then back to the school armoury on Monday.

In my 4 years we never had a single problem with 14 year olds carrying the things through town, or having them at home. Indecently the armoury was a storeroom at the end of a prefab 3 class unit, with an unbarred window.

Amazing how much more mature we were 60 years ago isn't it?

Thanks for that Paul1405. You have just proven why people now-a-days can't have a weapon. I have no sympathy for those people. Idiots everywhere. Urban Culture & violent Video Games reek havoc on todays City kids.

While I haven't seen the Article in the Sun Herald I presume that it was about teaching kids to handle a firearm. I see a big difference between instructing kids in the proper use of firearms & "Arming Kids" which gives the false impression of allowing kids Carte Blanche. False News & scare mongering again by the PC & lefties.

No proper instruction by people who have no qualifications is the reason for what happened in those Videos.

Paul,

Do the Greens want to ban Minor's Permits and the safety instruction that go with them so that the Greens dire predictions will be fulfilled?

Keep people ignorant of firearms safety and there are sure to be accidents; seems that that is the aim of the Greens.

What is the Greens' take on chainsaw safety courses?
