My dad went hunting a few times when I was growing up, but not often and we didn't have a gun ourselves.

I do not own guns and have no plans to.

I've never owned one, but my dad is a hunter, so growing up, he always had his hunting rifles in the basement.

No guns and never plan to get one.

Have no need for a gun.

DH and I have some and both our girls repeatedly get the "if you see a gun, don't touch and tell and adult" speech. So far they have shown zero interest in them.

Tread carefully. The mere mention of the g-word is forbidden here.

Some people should use a glue stick instead of chapstick.

Kids know about the guns. DS 15 has been ttaught to use and shoot the gun from a young age. They both know all about gun safety. We have never had an issue with "curious" m inds. They know that guns need to be respected.
This is what we did with our kids. They have had it drilled into them since they were little, that guns are not toys.

Yes I own several guns, getting ready to buy a new high powered rifle for hunting and a handgun, I know I'm going to be listed now as one of the gun nuts rushing to buy my guns, but had planned on doing this last summer. All guns locked and secured like they should be.
But I don't know if Spongebob is the same as a Pink Hello Kitty one.

He carries all the time, and if he can't he feels naked without it. He is a hunter, and enjoys just target practicing too. He's made a nice target range at our place up north.
I had a pink .22 Sig Mosquito, but DD15 has claimed that as her range gun, so I just had to buy the purple .22 Sig Mosquito when it came out.

We own several. Growing up my father was a big hunter. He still has his guns at the house. My DH and sons hunt and own several different types. No assualt rifles. DS13 also does shooting sports for 4H, so we have the stuff for that. they were taught very young about guns and gun safety.

Yep, we own guns. And if you come into my house uninvited, you WILL see them.

No, although I'm in the minority in the area where I live. I very much doubt I'd ever want to own one.

My dad had a couple deer hunting rifles when I was growing up, but I don't remember ever seeing them in the house. He must have either hidden them really well, or kept them off our property. He sold them after going deer hunting once after we moved to GA- said it was too depressing after hunting in WI, MI, and Canada. I guess he thought the deer were too little in the south!!

Oh, DS also has a BB gun, but I don't know if that counts or not.
