    Sheriff Detectives at my kids school today

    Sheriff detectives visited my 9 Yr old daughters 3rd grade class today.
    She asked each one "Are you a fan of Open Carry?" One said, "Oh, the... 4th amendment?"
    She replied, "No, it's the 2nd."

    According to her they all answered "It depends.", Or "That's a tough question."

    I can't think of a time when I have been prouder of my kid than this, I bought her that trampoline she was wanting today.

    Awesome! Proud Pappa right there.

    She has now made the DHS's watch list at the ripe age of 9.

    Seriously she did a good thing, I bet she influenced/influences other children her age in her class. That goes a lot further than many people think.

    Good for her.

    May I recommend that you help her write a letter to the paper. or at least to the city chief of police. She will get a good edu from this.

    I know of a daughter in HS, that will remain anonymous. That had to write a paper on any topic. What was her topic of choice? Constitutional Carry and it's benefits.

    Right on!!! Way to teach them young!
    The closest i get to that is my 3 year old takes her toy gun and stuffs into her waistband and says "i'm like you daddy".
    Or if she sees me packing she says "I like your new gun daddy".

    Not even as close to as awesome as your youngin'.

    Train up a child when he is young, and when he is old he won't depart from it. Very old words but usually holds true. Teach and instruct kids, show and explain right and wrong, set an example, and teach them what consequences and honor are. If you teach them about firearms, teach the proper precautions and take the mystery out of it. Most kids don't find them so fascinating anymore. Then they grow up with a proper respect and knowledge in the presence of firearms. They also learn to view them as the inanimate tool that they are.

    You should be proud of your daughter.

    If she feels she did not get a straight answer or is still curious, you might encourage her to write your local newspaper, particularly about the cop that pulled the wrong amendment. i.e. "Shouldn't the police know the law? signed 9-year old.

    Editors are suckers for kids letters and a topic like this may get it published.

    The gentlemen from the Sheriffs office were just there doing a public service presentation to her class. Just like a local fire department might visit an elementary school with an engine. There was nothing foul afoot.

    Im not sure if she realized they dodged her question and didn't really give an answer.

    I'm in San Diego this week on business so I haven't had a chance to question her personally about it but the family will be coming down to join me for the weekend so I am looking forward to hearing her tell the story again.

    I like the idea of her writing about it and will encourage her to do so.

    Oh, that I want to read! Do it... and when it's published, post a link here.
    And how 'bout those cops who thought that civil rights are complicated, or weren't sure whether they were in support?
    Might cc that letter to the Sheriff.

    +1 on this.
    My dad taught me from a very young age firearm safety and took me shooting.
    I knew where his guns were and never thought about touching them without his permission for a few reasons.
    1. They weren't mysterious things from a TV show that i wasn't allowed to even look at.
    2. He would have spanked the hell out of me for doing it. (and rightly so)

    When you find out cops are at your kids school from a gun forum... You may be a redneck! lol!

    I just put two and two together and realized who you were. You missed a good meet up in Pasadena.

    Nice. She's an assertive one, ain't she. I would have loved to see the look on their faces and her teacher's face.

    I took a course similar to this when I was in the 7th grade.
    But that was in 1955. Before all this anit-gun crap started.
    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs.

    This should be part of every school curriculum especially High school

    Recommend way before HS - the earlier the better - then wash, rinse and repeat.

    The responsibility begins at home - nothing this important should be left to the state, especially one with an anti-freedom agenda.

    I agree, starting them out young is better. I think around the age of 10 is a good starting point, but every kid and situation is different. I've started my daughter on my Appleseed "liberty" rifle (.22 with battle sights and sling) and she rocked it. She was having such a good time I had to drag her from the range! She is ten, I wanted to start her sooner but she refuses to grow!
