    Age limits are bad but I don't see the point of getting a 3 year old a gun. It would be like getting a 3 year old a road bike. I was six when I got my first, a single shot 410.

    Personally I think a kid's first gun should have at least a little recoil as that lets them know they using a powerful and dangerous tool that much be respected.

    I suppose its fine if you live in a rural area. Of course in only well supervised situations.

    Thats a given. I never lived anywhere but rural areas when I was growing up.

    It only seems sensible to me to limit the posession of firearms to adults.

    I think kids should learn proper firearm safety and handling as early as possible. Many anti-2nd amendment nuts complain about accidental shootings.In this country well tell kids to not run with scissors so they don't stab themselves or others accidentally. We tell kids to not talk to strangers so that Chester the child molester doesn't snatch them from the street.Well tell our kids to look both ways before crossing the street so that they do not get turned into street pizza.We tell kids to not do drugs so that they do not grow up to be junkies.We have sex ed classes to warn kids about unplanned pregnancy and STDs. For adults we have don't drink and drive commercials so that they do not get drunk off their ass, drive a car and kill someone innocent people. I have even seen a commercial telling teens to not send nude picks to their boyfriend's phone because he might be a douche and show everyone the nude pic.. In this country we have at least 310 million firearms in the hands of private citizens and the constitutional right of citizens to keep and bear arms.So one would think if the anti-2nd amendment group had a genuine concern over accidental shootings then they would support instilling kids with proper firearm handling and safety and public service announcements and tv specials talking about firearm safety and handling.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
