On the one hand gun owners can justify owning a gun and in all respects there is nothing wrong with it. Guns are a good way to bond with your child; you can take her hunting or target practice and make a day of it. Many people feel safer with a gun in the house in case of an intruder.

On the other hand, guns are deadly objects that have a purpose of killing; accidental or intentional. Anti-gun activists can justify not owning a gun and in all respects there is nothing wrong about feeling that way either. Many children die each year at the hands of a gun that went off accidentally in homes just like yours.

What is the happy medium? Knowledge! Whether you are a gun owner or not knowledge can make the difference between life and death.

I do own a rifle. I have taught my children the dangers of my hunting rifle and I keep the ammo separate from the gun and hidden. I have used knowledge as a tool to reduce the chance of danger coming to my children. This knowledge came in handy one day when my daughter was playing at another house and a child found a LOADED gun and started playing with it; my daughter knew the dangers and came and got an adult immediately. Praise God!

I have been asked by several Christian brothers and sisters why I am so cautious about http://www.MySpace.com. I don’t believe having a MySpace page or visiting MySpace is bad so please don’t think I am judging you if you have a page. I just want to share in the knowledge that could possibly prevent harm from coming to someone you know some day.

I wrote a page with plenty of resources on the subject and I pray whether you are affiliated with MySpace or not you will take a few moments of your time and increase in your knowledge. You can find out more here: http://www.squidoo.com/blockMySpace/
