Kids seem to be growing up faster than ever, and these stories highlight the youngest age group acting like adults «too young, too soon» (TYTS). Kids are exposed to many more influences and bad behaviors through television, film, and access to the internet. Are celebrities bad role models for young impressionable children? Between stories of teenage gunmen who are not old enough to carry their weapons, toddlers in tiaras, crazy dance moms, and kids getting plastic surgery as birthday presents, it’s easy to see that maybe growing up too fast can hurt rather than help kids.

I shot guns when I was 7 and I used a real ar
It’s funny when they gonna try a real ar-15 and are like crying
Make sure you have a good stock
How can a child learn to respect a gun if they have never seen one . Parents teach your children.
If there's a gun in the home children need to learn to use it safely, with adult supervision. If not with an adult, they'll surely experiment with it on their own. Don't kid yourselves. Children are curious. They are always watching and learning. They WILL teach themselves if parents don't take responsibility to do it with them.
I started on 22s and airsoft guns and I use ar-15's too. I think personally all kids should learn how to use guns, it could teach you a lot about responsibility and safety first. You can also train them just in case in the future they want to hunt or know how to use them against enemies.
Girl: I think shooting is more fun than anything else
Me: *runs into PUBG world and borrows some weapons then comes back*
Me: Don't think of using me as a target… *takes out pan and UZI*
omg i need that pink cammo ar15
Screw these parents that don’t take care of their kids if you take care of your kids none of that shit would happen

As long as they teach them how to shoot a gun right then it’s good and at that age when you teach them young they will always remember how to shoot a gun because they learnt so early
I wish this shit was in europe. Damn amarica having the most fun thing
I'm 10 and I've killed 2 deer with a gun so you are not mature enough
It's not exactly hidden…?
FUCK YEAH TEACH THESE CHILDREN HOW TO SHOOT. OH AND YOU IDIOT DOCTOR. I LEARNED TO SHOOT WHEN I WAS 4 🙂
Ok I like B.B. gun
I 7 and I don’t have a gun gta5 have GUNNNNNNNN??????
They should not
I feel like kids should shoot a couple guns but that’s it kids should not be brainwashed and all that but when adults they can shoot guns whenever they want
Are you fucking kidding me!? Were not ISIS where kids are at war too. We're children. At least airsoft or paintball to actually have fun.That was my childhood. But if you use a real gun, the next thing you know, you won't hear them breathing anymore. Airsoft/Paintball, little pain and fun. Get the differences right. smh
9 yro uses an AR15?
Put your kids into airsoft then real guns when there older they will still learn especially if they want to join the military
Great now we're going to have kindergarten school shootings wtf???
Fuck yea exercise your 2nd right make sure they respect the weapon and understand it and just dont be a dumb ass and let your kid keep them in there room and cant access them when ever they want and shut the fuck up maby u shouldn't leave the guns out that's comen sense not to leave a gun out
