Didi, the number of people owning guns in our small community is scary. Our neighbors have guns in their home. I’ve seen the father walking to and from the car carrying a leather rifle case that looks as though its big enough for two rifles and one of the rifles was sticking out.
I don’t want our small children playing over there. How do I say, “No, my kids can’t spend time in your home?”
Don’t let them go over there. This may sound too simplistic but my answer is pragmatic: Keep your children out and away from your neighbor’s house and any home where you suspect there are guns.
Look at it this way, if you had a child allergic to peanuts or cats or your children don’t have any sugar in their diet at home, you would say: “My kids don’t eat sugar, they don’t have sugar in there diet, so I can’t let them play at your house.”
So, you say: “We know you have guns in your home and I can’t allow my children to play in a house where I know there are guns.”
There’s always the danger that a little one will come upon a gun that happens to be loaded, with consequences that are terrible to contemplate.
Tell the neighbor that you do not want your children in a home where there are guns of any kind and to please not make the situation difficult.
