From Mike at work:
I brought my then youngest (who is now the middle) daughter to the range at 8-years old and she absolutely loved it. Safe gun handling was taught at least a week before we went. By the time we were at the range she knew what to do and had respect for the rifle. To this day she still asks me “when are we going to that range?” Check out her “straight and off the trigger” finger.
Here are pictures of Mike:

From looking at these pictures the thought occurs to me that if our opponents were smart enough they may actually have had a rational reason for banning rifles with “collapsible” (length adjustable) stocks. This makes it more difficult for the young to shoot. Even if they didn’t think it through it is a good argument against such restrictions. Hence our side could and should demand, “Think of the children!”
