2nd Amendment saves children

Here are two great stories. First, a 5-year-old shoots and kills an 800 pound alligator who was intent on eating him. Second, a 13-year-old fights off burglars in his home.

These stories aren’t that rare.  Clayton Cramer’s Civilian Gun Self-defense Blog catalogs incidents of citizens defending themselves with firearms. Children defending themselves or their families with firearms appear regularly in the local news, but rarely in the liberal media of course. We should be training our children how to handle firearms responsibly, just as we do with scissors, knives, forks, glass, garden tools, etc. Every child is different and must be handled differently.

Firearms are just another tool, but one that can equalize their potential struggle with those much larger than themselves – either 4-footed, 800 pound alligators or 2-footed, violent, predatory criminals breaking into their house.
