People get shot over cellphones and toy airplanes and nerf guns they painted black.
Any kid in the Western world thinks they know all about guns since they've seen them used as day to day items on TV, Movies, Video games and more. Kids used to learn about safe handling from hunting, cadets or the scouts. Pretty well all those venues are now shut down expect for a tiny percentile.
They need to teach firearms safety the same way they teach sex ed. It can't be don't touch they're evil, don't ask they're just for killing babies; it has to be a positive lesson.
Airsoft, where nothing is hurt but feelings.
