The Second Amendment protects our right to bear arms. There is no downside risk in protecting the security of your family. The first rule of safety is a firearms safety course sponsored by the NRA. Firearms safety is all about education. Organizations like National Shooting Sports Foundation are dedicated to firearms safety. And it is also important when traveling by auto to know the firearms laws in all 50 states.
It is never too early to educate your kids and grandchildren in firearms safety. Back in 1860 Henry Repeating Arms Company introduced the first lever-action repeating rifle. Debbie and I got our grandkids started in gun safety by buying for each a Henry Repeating Arms Youth Rifle, 22lr, 16.125” Barrel (blue finish, walnut stock) model with adjustable sights. This lever-action rifle is downsized for younger gun enthusiasts and is the perfect place to begin gun safety for your younger family members.
The perfect companion for your new Henry’s is 22lr ammo from CCI.
Your family can benefit from understanding the history of the Swiss Militia and how the Swiss militia system has helped keep Switzerland neutral, safe, prosperous, and free for hundreds of years (Read Part I and Part II of my series on how Switzerland’s militia system faced down Hitler and the Nazis).
