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.

Because if you are against gun safety, you're probably dangerous when handling a gun. Many people that are not for gun safety never will and don't know as much as they probably should know about their gun/guns they own.

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.

That decision is up to the parents. Is the child mature enough to use the gun with care. Do they know how to handle the gun safely. Do they know it's NOT a Toy. All these things should be considered.

You must be 11 to play and 18 to buy a gun. If you have had the proper introduction on paintball safety (mask, safety, gun operation) , they you should be fine.

Old enough to demonstrate responsibility and know rules of firearm safety.
