Episode 007 - Gun safety for children



Welcome back to the God and Guns Podcast. My name’s Mike, your host, (Zack) And I’m Zack, your other host.

Zack and I use this podcast to talk about God, guns, and the responsible Christian gun owners interests.

Today we’ll be talking about gun safety for children. Joining us again this week is Steve, the law enforcement officer from Texas.

Q: Did you know that they had automobiles in the Bible?

A: Yes, the Bible says that the disciples were all of one Accord. When the boogeyman goes to sleep he checks the closet for Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris can lead a horse to water and make it drink.

Tips from Field & Stream


NO. 2: GIVE THEM A BB GUN {lock it in a safe like other “real” guns}





Children have the ability to find anything. So make sure your weapons are secured especially for young children.


Avoid attaching any mystique to the firearm through flat prohibition.


  • Always assume      that a gun is loaded, even after you have personally unloaded it.
  • Never point a      firearm at another person. Never point a firearm in the direction of      anything except a proper target at a range or while hunting.
  • Never handle a      firearm unnecessarily.
  • Never accept a      firearm from another person unless they have shown it to be unloaded in      front of you. Never assume.
  • Always verify      the unloaded condition of a firearm.
  • Never throw,      drop, or otherwise mishandle a firearm.
  • When      encountering a strange gun (say laying on the street), do not pick it up.      Contact an adult (preferably a law enforcement officer) as soon as      possible. When possible, keep other children away from the gun. Do not      make any assumptions about a "found" weapon."
  • When firing at      a range, always keep the gun pointed down range, towards the targets.
  • A firearm is      not a toy. Do not treat it like one.
  • Do not show      off firearms to friends and schoolmates. And, do not tell friends and      schoolmates that there are firearms in the house. Do not take a firearm      from its place without a parent present.
  • Always use      proper ear and eye protection when at the range.
  • A firearm is      not a status symbol, or indicator of strength. Do not use it as one.
  • Whenever you      are in doubt about a firearm, do not touch it. Get an adult to check it      for you.
  • Remember, it      is our right to keep and bear arms, but it also our responsibility to do      so safely.
  • It only takes      one little mistake to cause a big accident.
