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.
