Last night my wife and I took the kids (10 and 4) out and drove around to see the Christmas light displays our neighbors have put up. We got to discussing why/how we celebrate Christmas (they are very familiar with the Biblical foundation)--but we were discussing how fortunate we were free to be able to celebrate as we see fit.
The discussion moved to our other freedoms, so I went on to explain the importance of the 2d Amendment...why daddy carries...and how most everyone is free to exercise their 2d Amendment rights. I contrasted VA laws with IL laws (where grandma and grandpa live)...to which my eldest says...(without prompting)
"that's dumb...the only people who aren't going to follow the laws are the criminals...and they get guns from other criminals"
I nearly drove into the ditch...
Yet it warmed my heart to hear my son say this...
That notwithstanding, we will be picking up a Browning Buckmark later this week...and that will be his first pistol to shoot regularly. (He has already shot my M1, Benelli Nova (both benchrest), and MK9).
So--if a 10yr old can understand this...why can't these "educated" idiots who end up getting elected to government understand the 2d Amendment?

But then I realized, your son, at 10 years of age, is already smarter than most legislators I know, so that may disqualify him for running for office.
Then I thought.... PRESIDENT!!!!
But why have him set his sights so low?
Seriously: You've got a bright kid... keep him shooting, and learning, and we will have someone worthwile to trust our futures to.
When the messenger arrives and says 'Don't shoot the messenger,' it's a good idea to be prepared to shoot the messenger, just in case.
Great kid! Great parents!
He's way ahead of Pelosi and her gang!
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Smart kid. Blinding flashes of the obvious are good things for kids to have. Good things for adults to have too come to think of it.
The only thing that stops bad guys with guns is good guys with guns. SgtD
that most adults should be at least as smart as a 10 year old...but they're not...
Your're a lucky dad...keep up the good examples...

Because those idiots are to busy being bought and paid for like pigs going to market.So--if a 10yr old can understand this...why can't these "educated" idiots who end up getting elected to government understand the 2d Amendment?
They should be teaching the Second Amendment in schools. Ask people on the street in the 18 to 20 year age group and three fourths of them would not know what it is.
Home school or private school him because if public school has its way.......

The politicians and bureaucrats want all power in their own hands, not in yours. And to achieve this they must regulate you, take away your guns, and tax away as much of your money as possible, so they can determine how it will be spent, not you.

Sounds like a young "MAN" with a good head on his shoulders, I'm hoping for simular in the future, I'm sure we all with children are, but sounds like you pulled it off. Bright things in store.
Congratulations, we look forward to his future contributions here on CC.

You did a good job raising your kids if he knows how to think for himself.
