And sure to inflame the lefties/gun grabbers…

After successfully navigating the publishing process, Yehuda Remer knew his venture into firearms related children’s book wasn’t done with his first publication Safety On and its companion coloring book.

Saw this over at the Guns.com, HERE.

And HERE is the post from last year, on his publication of Safety On, which is available from Amazon, HERE.

This is the blurb-

I grew up in an environment where guns were only seen in movies and TV, and the only people allowed to actually use a gun were police officers. The thought of an individual citizen actually owning a firearm for protection never occurred to me until I got married. People would constantly ask me after I purchased my first gun, “How can you buy a gun? You have two children in the house! Aren’t you afraid of accidents?” Those questions were answered with two simple question of my own. 

“Where do you suggest I teach my children about gun culture in America? Should I leave that to the media and Hollywood?” 

There was no response.

This book is meant not as an in-depth breakdown of guns or living with guns, but as an introduction to the world of firearms for children. Its goal is to plant the seeds of safe gun ownership into the minds of young patriots who will one day be responsible gun owners like the parents who teach them. It is up to the moms and dads of this country who exercise their 2nd Amendment rights to instill a deep respect for firearms. This book serves as the tool to open a dialogue between you and your child about keeping their “Safety On.”

He’s also got a second book out, The ABC’s of Guns, HERE.

Frankly, I think this is a great idea, as it starts kids much earlier than Eddie Eagle, and starts them on the road to responsible gun handling and later gun ownership.

  1. Agree 100%. Another thought – teach safe gun practices in elementary school, along with ‘reminder’ courses in middle and high school. I don’t think it would take much, a classroom at a time, with an instructor teaching how firearms work, and how to render them harmless (using dummy ammunition). I’ll bet the NRA and other gun rights associations would chip in.

    Not to push guns on them, but to help prevent firearm accidents from happening in the home. The same theory as teaching ‘safe sex’ (if it saves one life, its worth it).

    The point in the above post with the two questions is well made – who is responsible for teaching safe gun practices ? The parents is the natural answer, but when they don’t know either, society needs to step in and help.

  2. Anything that gets kids to read is good in my mind. And anything that teaches kids what to do with guns in a home is also good. Because there are too many accidents with kids.

    But, of course, this good idea wont fly far as it relies on parents to step up, be the adult and teach their own kids. Many times that just doesn’t happen. Unfortunately.

  3. When I got a pistol as an adult and showed my dad, he remarked that I should be careful and not store it where the kids could get it.
    I asked him if he thought putting it in a cigar box just inside the attic access under the insulation might be a good place.
    The look on his face was priceless.
    I liked that he stored the war trophy PPK with loose bullets rolling around in there so I don’t think he ever missed a few.
    At least I kept it clean for him.

  4. Children are always curious about firearms(or most any kind of weapon) and curiosity, about anything, always stems from ignorance. Ignorance is only cured by knowledge and I applaud any effort to provide knowledge of safety.
