    With all the increase in first time buyers and people pulling dads or grandpas guns out of the closet that have never been exposed to guns before I think we as a gun community need to be very diligent on pushing education. I dont know the details in any of the gun show gun mishaps this past weekend but i do know a few people that went to at least one of them. It was amazing on how many guns were there by the general public to be sold...The 4 rules are always important but now more then ever..and if you see someone with a gun that you find out hasnt been around them before politely ask and let them know the rules. And even ask if you can help them at all ( checking to make sure weapon is clear)

    Education is the only thing that will win the current battle over 2A. Both in terms of safety and in terms of what these tools are all about. The new buyers need to have good and affordable training. That is the real shame with ammo (especially 22LR and 9mm) being hard to find and at high prices. I see some ranges that are making training a priority. I would like to see the NRA do a better job of letting the public know about their training programs.

    Amen to that. There are too many buyers who have more dollars than sense who are driving prices up.
