We should start teaching children as young as possible to identify what a gun is and to go and get an adult as quickly as possible if they see another child playing with one. This should start on day one in public schools. The next thing that children should be taught is to never put your finger on a trigger unless you intend to shoot it and to assume that every gun is always loaded. Surely this is something that anyone of any political stripe could get behind. If children do not know what a gun is they are far more likely to pick it up and have an accidental shooting.
