    My Father took me and my 2 Brothers to the clay pits every other weekend throughout my childhood and put guns in our hands. He taught us to shoot and to respect the weapon at all times and circumstances. He taught us to never, ever point a gun at anything unless you intend to shoot and kill it. Moral of the story, No lessons taught here on any level. Put away your guns out of reach. God Bless this innocent child.
