I have been divorced for some time now and have two boys from the marriage. One is three years old and the other is five. I pick them up from school every single Friday and keep them for the weekend. When they are with me I either have my Glock19 on me IWB or secured in the safe in my closet. My five year old saw my gun a few months ago and questioned me about it. This gave me a chance to get both boys together and gave them a lesson in safety about guns and what to do if they see one at a friends house or at school. I told them never to touch one and if they see one to leave the area right away and tell an adult. I told the five year old that I will teach him to use one when he gets older.
I fully expected my sons to tell their mom when I dropped them off the next day and also expected to get the phone call from their mom. But this never happened. Months went by and the boys were no longer curious about my gun when I had it on me. To me this is good because they will be less likely to be tempted by curiosity if they come across one anywhere.
Then today I got the phone call. All I heard was screaming and carrying on about what was I teaching my son and why do I have a gun and how unsafe that was and so on and so on. When I finally got a chance to speak I found out that my oldest finally mentioned it to her in the car on the way to school. When I finally got a chance to speak the first thing I said to her was I hope she did not make a big deal out of it in front of the kids. Secondly I told her that I loved my sons just as much as her and that I am extremely safe with them around. I also told her that whenever they are old enough I will teach them how to shoot. I think thats what really set her off.
She says she is gonna take me to court because I'm endangering my kids. At a certain point I stopped listening to her because I was at work. Anyway I know she will eventually calm down and if she does not, I'm not worried because I have not done anything illegal.
This just showed me how anti-gun people can be. It's something that I can't understand. What do you all think about this?
