Fire departments responding to large building fire

Reader Opinion: Gun safety

I am responding to the news article about the 9-year-old child that stole a loaded pistol from a person's car. Come on idiots, get a lock box for the car. You should be charged with reckless use of a firearm. Start holding people accountable.

I am a firearms instructor, plus have my permit to carry. It is stressed in both of them—safety, safety, safety.

This person needs to take a firearms safety course and permit to carry class and pay attention. Get a lock box, stupid. They should also lose their pistol until they learn safety, safety, safety. We keep stressing to the kids we teach—safety, safety, safety.

We regularly hear from the kids we train that their parents aren't doing what we are teaching their children.
