We live in a time where many people believe guns kill people. Unfortunately, evil people DO use guns to kill people—but they use other things, too.

It also teaches “discipline, patience, endurance, disappointment and failure”—life, basically. It also keeps family tradition alive and gets your kids out of the house and into the woods or a field to see God’s creation first-hand.
