I have worked in law enforcement over 30 years and recently retired. My kids and grand kids have all been safety trained and I have taken them all to the range. I have never started them off with a Uzi... A good weapon is a .22 caliber with serious supervision training and coaching. In this photo I have my 9 year old grand daughter shooting a .22 caliber Ruger.... We practice safety safety safety!!!!!

Dragon Con 2014

Posted: 28 Aug 2014 10:39 PM PDT

Thursday is the new Friday, or so it would seem based on the packed hotel lobbies in Downtown Atlanta.

Labor Day weekend is upon us and with that, so is Dragon Con.

Now in it's 28th year, Dragon Con is one of the largest conventions in North America and for good reason, the convention has something for everyone - celebrity panels, autograph sessions, author Q&A sessions, gaming, and most of all, lots of costumes.

Thursday night was no exception as many cosplayers hit the floor of the Marriott to show off some of their latest work.

The convention officially kicks off Friday and runs through Monday.

Shooting sports teach discipline

Posted: 28 Aug 2014 02:36 PM PDT

In my home we have a great respect for firearms and their appropriate uses. We participate in local 4H and Boy Scout programs that have shooting sports available. As a rule in our home we have spoken with our boys about the guns. They have shot them and have cleaned them. One of my boys feels uncomfortable with guns and that is ok us. We do not make him participate in our family shoots but he does have family training around the guns. I think it has been helpful for our boys to know (who are now 11 & 13) that we want to know from them if they ever see a gun out when it shouldn't be like at school, playground, or even at a friends home. We never show off our guns or casually play with them and only get them out when we are shooting. Each member of the family has completed a hunter safety course. Too often children are exposed to guns in a fictitious way mostly in video games. First person shooter games give the player no accountability one the trigger is pulled. Games are played with no though of what is beyond the target or even what the target actually is. It has been my experience that shooting sports with actual and appropriate firearms teach kids accountability for their firearm actions. I feel terrible for the victims associated with shootings. Anyone can pull a trigger and point a gun but not everyone understands the responsibility and accountability associated with it.
