Rule number one: Never point a gun at another human being unless
you intend to use it.
(Loaded or Unloaded).  

    Too many kids die in Gun-Related tragedies.  Children are fascinated with guns and
    if you think that you can hide your guns from your kids, then you would be sadly
    mistaken.  Children are curious, creative, inquisitive, resourceful and relentless if
    they are looking for something that they are curious about.


    That's why Protect Thyself Services has gun safety classes for children, Pre-K
    through 9th grade to eliminate their curiosity.  Pre-K children are taught: if you see

    When kids are six years of age on up, there's a first steps class, teaching kids how
    to properly handle a gun, starting with a handgun and then a rifle.    "Treat every
    gun like it's loaded, never point your gun at anything you don't intend to shoot,
    keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to shoot the gun,".

    Some quote/unquote experts say: "The best way to keep from having a child gun
    accident is not to have guns in your home at all".  Protect Thyself Services strongly
    disagrees!   Good quality training in gun safety, will eliminate a child's curiosity
    about guns and in some case like a 15 year old in Houston, Texas on Jan 2013 it
    might save a life.

    On August 14, 2018, a North Carolina woman named Chandra Nierman was being
    choked and beaten by her boyfriend, Steven Kelley, in plain view of her three
    children. Kelley threatened to slit the woman’s throat and kill everyone in the
    house.  That was all the woman’s kids (one son, aged 12, and two daughters aged
    15 and 16) needed to hear. The boy went and got his mother’s gun. The 15-year-
    old took the gun and  took aim at Kelley and fired twice, killing him.  

    On May 01, 2016, Alabama 11-year-old shoots suspected home invader.  He was
    home alone when he heard a noise upstairs.  The 11-year-old boy was scared, so
    he grabbed a knife and steadied himself.  The man appeared on the stairwell, but
    when confronted, he ran back up upstairs. When he saw the man was holding a
    gun.  Instead of running, he upgraded his weaponry, picking up a 9mm handgun
    that was in the home.  When the boy pulled the gun out to defend himself, the
    intruder thought it wasn’t a real gun and just kept on walking toward the boy.  The
    boy fired a warning shot. The man was carrying a stolen goods began running.  The
    scared boy emptied the magazine, firing off 12 shots at the intruder and wounded
    him in the leg as he was hopping the fence.  Note: His stepfather had been giving
    him shooting lessons.

    Nov. 12, 2015, A 13-year-old South Carolina boy fatally shot one burglary suspect
    and scared off a second with his mother's gun.  The teenager told the Charleston
    County Sheriff's Office that he was alone on Tuesday afternoon in his family's
    home, north of North Charleston, when someone tried to break in.   The boy
    grabbed his mother's gun, and then waited at the back door of the home, then the
    boy fired repeatedly through the door, and someone outside shot back.  The
    suspect was hit three times, and a getaway driver rushed him to a hospital in
    Charleston, where he died of his gunshot wounds.


    On 10 January 2013, a 15-year old boy used his father’s AR-15 to defend himself
    and his 12-year old sister against two burglars at  their home just north of
    Houston, Texas.   Their father is a Harris County Precinct 1 deputy constable, and
    the boy knew what he had to do to keep himself and his sister alive.  The two men
    tried to break in, with one going through the front door and the other in the back.  
    The boy did not panic and remembered his training.   The boy grabbed his dad's
    AR-15 and shot at both of them. The two invaders later showed up at a Tomball
    hospital. The adult was hit three times and was flown to Memorial Hermann
    hospital, while the juvenile was taken back to the crime scene.   "We don't try to
    hide things from our children in law enforcement,” Lt. Jeffrey Stauber said. “That
    young boy was protecting his sister. He was in fear for his and her life.”


    On 5 January 2012, In North Carolina, yet another teen has used deadly force to
    protect his home from a Gang of 4 intruders. Police in North Carolina revealed a
    14-year-old boy shot dead an intruder attempting to break into his home while he
    and his sister were alone.    The older sister had called 911 and the dispatcher was
    on the line the whole time and the police were on their way, but not in time.   
    While his 17-year-old sister hid in a closet, the 14 year old opened fire with a
    shotgun  as a gang of men attempted to smash their way into their home.   He had
    been trained by his father on how to use the shotgun and he knew where to find
    it.   Brother and sister are alive and well.
