When I was a boy growing up I was handed my first pellet gun at the age of 6. I was taught proper gun safety. I was raised in a middle class family where we did everything together which included grocery shopping, car buying, home purchases, etc. I had a bedtime, my television time was limited, and music that promoted violence or destruction was banned from the home. I was raised with camping, hunting, and fishing always in my life. I have served time in the U.S. Navy and was honorably discharged.
