What would our KIDS suggest we say to another kid who asks about our gun?
The idea for this thread was sparked by the interesting discussion, What do you say if a little child asks about your gun?.
I wonder what our KIDS would suggest we might say?
You know, I'm wondering what sort of answers we might get to something like this:
"Honey, on Thanksgiving [etc.] we're going to be visiting the cousins. You know that Daddy carries a gun. You also know it's none of their business. But what if one of them happens to bump into me and asks me what it is? What do you think I should tell them?"
I realize that bringing something like this up out of the blue might be unwise. But if you happen to be talking about guns with your child this might be an interesting thing to discuss. If you do, would you please consider posting their age and their response?

I never worry about kids and my guns, especially not my kids. If others "bump" into my belt and get an idea, I don't care. Has never happened. If they have me pegged and ask, I won't lie.
It's the guns in the other house that worry me.

I think my kids believe that every "Daddy" carries a gun. They seem astounded when someone is not carrying a gun.

Well, my "kid" is 22 years old, but I think if we had asked him about it when he was young he would have just said to tell the truth. We always tried to instill in him the importance of telling the truth.

Its rather refreshing isn't it.
I think my 17,19& 23 year old would just say make some story up, but the 9 year old would say "yeah its a gun"
They all like to shoot, with the 17& 19 yr old daughter enjoying it more than the 23 yr old son.
He hunts but doesn't get all fired up about punching paper a lot.

It has always been my position that it is the parents responsibility to tell the children what to say and how to act for all activities and situations. We do this by example. I have successfully raised 4 children to adulthood with this primes.

My great nieces and nephews would ask if it was the same kind of gun as their daddys. All 6 of us carry plus our sons and daughters. You can almost smell the gun oil at our family gatherings.

Yeah I know, pretty novel concept, honesty, lol. Note, I said be honest, I didn't necessarily say to admit to carrying. Sometimes I could see myself being in the mood to just say it's none of their business, which would be an honest answer as well.

Sounds like you did right by your kids. After all, the family that shoots together...well, you know.
