Children should be taught what guns are, and to leave them alone unless they are with a responsible adult. And since children do not always listen, firearms should be securely stored under lock.

How old you have to be to have a bb gun?

There is no set age limit. This is best decided by the Parent and child. If an educated parent feels it is the right time for the child to learn good safety gun handling then I encourage that they take the time to teach or have someone teach the child how to handle the BB gun. It's all about education and safety.The age that I think is right for a child to have a BB gun is 10, because they would have seen enough gun accidents so they will know (hopefully) what not to do and what to do.Depends on your parents and the police.
