With Christmas only days away, and shopping malls packed, many Americans are scrambling for last minute gift ideas for kids, especially those older children, nephews, and nieces on your list. Here’s one idea:
Give the gift of freedom and responsibility – a gun.
Most states allow teenagers to own and possess long guns, and those 18 years of age and older to own, possess, and open carry handguns. Additionally, few states require any registration of guns, or ban private intra-family transfers of guns.
Long an American tradition for children to find a Red Ryder BB gun or Winchester rifle under the Christmas tree, author Skip Coryell lists his recommendations for the Five Best Youth Guns in this month’s edition of Human Events:
Daisy Model 10 BB Gun, Marlin Model 915Y, H&R Pardner Compact, Weatherby Vanguard Compact, and the Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm.
A great side benefit from Christmas gun gifts is the time you will spend with your kids learning about guns, cleaning them, going to gun safety training classes, and time spent together at the range. And all these kids will just love telling their friends and others at school what they got for Christmas :)
