There is a difference in teaching a kid about shooting and teaching a kid that killing people is ok. I don't think that has anything to do with the original post. The point is propper handling of a firearm not teaching how to use it recklessly. I learned about firearms at the age of four. It wasn't pushed on me. I was just able to experience it. Some may say that is too young and it may be. You have to know your own kid's learning curve. I don't feel tainted for knowing how to handle one so early in life. I think that you have some other experiences that have added to your issue with learning about it while young. I grew up knowing that firearms could hurt people and as such should be handled safely and I don't ever recall anyone having to tell me how dangerous they could be. It was obvious what damage they could do.
