Not the First Time

Bitter on TBFKASIH has a post about Brady Campaign/Joyce Puppet Board Member Joan Peterson questioning whether firearm owners should be allowed to keep their children since we're obviously 'poor role models'.

This isn't the first time we've heard this before and it's a natural conclusion from their push to make firearm ownership a health issue. A former board member of Ceasefire PA once stated that teaching children how to use a firearm is a form of child abuse and that playing 'soldier' is a symptom of future sociopathy.

Like I said, it's a natural result from the 'firearm ownership=danger in the household' push by gun control advocates. If you can make that idea recognized by the establishment, it will be easier to restrict firearms 'for the children' since it will be assumed you're putting your kids at risk by even owning them. Unfortunately for them, that extremist view is becoming the purview of an ever shrinking fringe element who's foaming at the mouth dialogues are becoming less relevant as firearms are once again becoming more and more mainstream.

This isn't the first time we've heard this type of argument but unfortunately it won't be the last.

I played war and soldier as a kid - just like every other boy I knew in the 1960s. I never knew we were all now sociopaths. How nice.

Remember, Ladd Everet wanted Child Protective Services called on a falsified story he cooked up simply because he doesn't like gun owners.

I started teaching my grandsons gun safety when they could walk on their own. I think not teaching it should be a form of child abuse. If they aren't taught, they won't know what to do if they come across a firearm. That's how children become victims.

Gotta wonder, do(es) Joan Peterson, et al, smoke, drink (alcohol), shop at Walmart, eat bacon, drive a car, use electricity, etc? Aren't these considered baaaad; with the participation in any making her/them 'poor role models'?
