Teaching firearm safety...

I can't be sure, but the boys rifle looks like a Remington I bought when I was 12 years old in 1946. I took it to school, stood it in the corner of the coat room and hunted rabbits and squirrels on the way home.

By the way, does a child have the right to protect his life? May he use whatever is necessary to defend his life?

If a child isn't allowed to "free range" then, certainly, he / she wouldn't have been taught, encouraged, or exposed to the skills of self-defense. Someone else, the police, is supposed to do that. Oh, that's right - the police are villians as well. Ask a demo-rat liberal. Today, a child is a victim or a bully. I pity them.

Anon. ... We took shotguns or .22s to school in the same way. Most likely left in the (unlocked) trunk of a car until after school.

MADDOG... Victim or bully. You're right, but it goes beyond children. It's just the way it is in this brave new world.
