Being A Responsible Gun Owner

Welcome to today’s podcast episode, Being A Responsible Gun Owner.

In today’s episode, we’re exploring the critical topic of responsible gun ownership.

I’m thrilled to have you join me for this important discussion.

Today, we’re tackling Task Number 19 of our 50 Survival Prepper Tasks for Beginners, focusing on ensuring that every member of your family is prepared to handle firearms safely and responsibly.

Now, I understand that discussing guns can be controversial, but regardless of where you stand on the issue, it’s crucial to recognize the significant responsibility that comes with firearm ownership.

Whether for personal safety, self-defense, hunting, or emergency preparedness, being a responsible gun owner means prioritizing safety, education, and accountability.

So, let’s dive in and explore what it truly means to be a responsible gun owner in today’s world.

📍  Hey guys, Sheri Ann Richerson from Experimental Homesteader. com and welcome to our daily vlog. Today we’re going to talk about task number 19, which is to make sure every member of your family can be armed. I know this is a really controversial subject and one that may end up getting the video banned, but it is certainly one of the 50 survival prepper tasks for beginners and Something that definitely needs to be taken into consideration.

📍  So, you want to begin by checking the laws in your state or county. And making sure what the laws are on ages of people carrying guns.  And what needs to be done to legally do that wherever you live. Um, in many areas, you can purchase and teach your children how to safely and carefully use firearms.

📍  There are a lot of young kids that are taught to go hunting. Um, some from toddler age. And they enjoy doing this with their family. You know, going out. Deer hunting, rabbit hunting, squirrel hunting, whatever the case may be. Many kids in states like Texas are just raised this way, they are raised around guns.

📍  They are taught safety from, you know, with guns, and they are taught that they are to be used for self defense or for hunting and nothing else. So, gun safety is paramount to carrying out this task. Without it, the potential for a catastrophe is heightened, as we have seen. And, once you begin purchasing firearms and ammunitions, you really need to also purchase a secure safe, a gun safe, to store all of these items in, because leaving a loaded gun out, or even leaving a gun and ammunition out, where children or other people have access to it, is definitely not a good idea.

📍  I know that a lot of people feel like they have to have their gun within reach for their own personal protection, but this is a responsibility issue. If you’re going to have a gun, you need to have some responsibility. And if you have your eye on that gun and you know that nobody else is going to get to it.

📍  That’s one thing. But, small children really like to pick up things that belong to parents or grandparents. And sometimes they don’t really understand the danger in that.

📍  There are many potential dangers with leaving things like, especially if you have older kids, teenagers, sometimes they feel like they see it on TV, they see it in a video game, they’re angry, they want to express their anger and that is when these mass shootings start happening. Certainly, nobody wants their child to be the person that did that.

📍  So, like I said, gun safety is absolutely paramount. But, I don’t feel it should be like how I was raised with don’t touch it. Because certainly I would not have. Um, the consequences would have been really severe. It would have been much better if I would have been taught, you know, and then told you don’t touch it.

📍  But at least I would have had an idea instead of waiting until adulthood to learn. So,  like I said, it’s something to think about and to consider. It is one of the 50 survival prepper tasks for beginners that we’ve been talking about. And, when it comes down to it, you have to make your own decision what’s in the best interest of your family.

📍  You have to know your children and what they can or will think about and do, how they will behave, how responsible are they? And again, if you’re. I feel like if your child is going to have a gun to go hunting with, then you as the adult need to keep that gun put up when that child is not with you. And you need to make sure they don’t have access to it so that these incidents that have been happening cannot happen.

📍  So that’s it for today, guys, thumbs up, thumbs down, comments below. Thanks for watching and have a great night.
