When does an accident turn into negligence?
  1. Dad left his loaded handgun on the kitchen table.
  2. 17 or 18 year old sister broke 3 of the 4 rules
  3. Sister had not been taught that if she did not know how to handle a gun she should NOT TOUCH IT.
My boys are 3 and 6.  The 3 year old knows to not touch any firearm, leave the room, and find a responsible adult.  Notice I didn't say any adult.  My 6 year old knows all of that plus the 4 rules.  He can not only tell you what the rules are, he can explain the why's.

Teach your children gun safety.  Even if you don't own a gun, teach them gun safety.  Accidents are so very often the result of poor training.  The more training your children have, the less likely an accident will occur, the more likely you can hug your kids at the end of the day.
