Super Jag Posted October 24, 2004 Share Posted October 24, 2004 An interesting but questionable statement came up the other day by a couple of gun enthusiasts. I'll try and quote them as best as possible... "No one who grew up learning how to handle a gun/rifle has committed a violent crime with a gun/rifle." The emphasis, as it was later explained, is that children who grow up around guns and LEARN TO RESPECT their potential DO NOT go around using them on other people. Supposedly the violent crimes with guns are being committed by people who DID NOT grow up with proper gun education. While it makes sense, it does make me raise an eyebrow of speculation. I will likely research it a bit... but for now am curious if anyone has any background on this discussion. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
