Kids get the message: safety first
For 10-year-old Nicholas Borchardt, Saturday's Family Firearms Day at the Howell Gun Club taught him a few important rules to handling a gun.
For starters, always keep it pointed in a safe direction and, second, don't keep your finger on the trigger unless you intend to shoot.
Of course, Nicholas had other interests at the safety-focused event.
"It's cool because some of the guns I've never gotten to shoot before," Nicholas said, adding that firing the shotgun made his arm sore.
This event was organized by SAFR, a pro-2nd amendment organization well worth joining. It's main focus is state level legislation which protects our 2nd amendment rights, but we also have nonpolitical events like Family Firearms Day as well to teach gun safety.
