Shooting as Some Folks See It

In the first place, most men and women are afraid of a gun. To them a gun means only a deadly weapon which if it does not kill the person who handles it, or some one else, will of a surety maim them for life, and hence it is easy to see why they wouldn't think of having a firearm about the house, much less of letting the boy have one of his own to play with.

Next to the fear of what might happen should a gun fall into the hands of a boy many persons believe—and I am one of them—that no living bird or beast, if it is harmless and not needed for food, should be killed. As many boys who live in small towns go around peppering the birds and cats and other living things on wing and foot, to say nothing of insulators on telegraph poles and weathercocks on barns, the idea of a boy having a gun is in consequence very often tabooed.

Again, at this time many parents see a deeper and graver meaning in letting the boy use a gun, for they are not at all in favor of preparedness, which means that every boy and every man in this country should be given a military training the chief feature of which is to know how to shoot straight. And according to their code men should not shoot down their fellow-men, and they think right.

The proper way, they hold, is for nations to settle their differences not by war but by arbitration— that is, by having persons whom they select to meet and discuss the points at issue and so settle the dispute peaceably; and with this lofty ideal I am also in sympathy. It is clear that parents who are opposed to preparedness are not apt to let the boy have a gun if they can help it.

Collins, A. Frederick. Shooting, for Boys,. New York: Moffat, Yard and, 1917. Print.
