Sydney is on this forensic anthropology track. She is going into a medical program specializing in forensics for high school. She watches every crime show on TV. I figure she will work for the FBI. But there was a missing piece. All the FBI agents I see on TV carry guns. So we better check that one off the bucket list while she is 14, right?
In all seriousness, teaching a responsible kid about firearm safety seems like a good move. You never know when they are going to go to someone else’s home who isn’t as safe and encounter a weapon. At least this way, she understands this is not a toy or how to unload it if she finds one unattended.
