Today’s Friday Film is one that it is tough to comment on. Â When everything works out well in the end, you have to just sit back and smile, especially when it is a 15 year old defending his sister from intruders with a rifle. Â It would appear that this family correctly judged the proper age for their son to have unimpeded access to a rifle to defend the home. Â I wish that there was a magical age that meant your kids were ready, but the fact remains that each family will have to answer this question on their own. Â Today we will talk about a few factors to consider.

Let me start off by saying very clearly that I am not advocating for or against children having access to firearms. Â Nor am I providing some magical formula for how you can determine if your kids should have the key to the safe. Â I am going to give my opinion on some factors you might want to consider when you think about the issue. Â By no means is this an exhaustive list. Â You must make the decision that is right for you and live with the consequences. Â Too soon and and our children could be harmed by the tools we want them to use for protection, too late, and theyÂ succumbÂ to what we want to protect them against.
