Vaultek sponsoring Kids S.A.F.E. a no brainer

Some of the more polarizing debates when it comes to firearms are storage and kids. When it comes to firearm storage, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. What’s right for one person and household might not be right for another. As far as children and guns go, it’s important that they’re educated on what to do if they find a firearm, and beyond that, giving them an education on the use and handling of guns aids in demystifying them.Learning that Vaultek has pledged sponsorship of the Kids S.A.F.E. Foundation is a natural fit.

Oregon advocate pushes for firearm education in the schools

Oregon has been a powderkeg when it comes to legislation pertaining to firearms. Here at Bearing Arms, we covered the grossly unconstitutional ballot initiative 114 last year, and while it was hotly debated, 114 did prevail in the public opinion. That measure does very little to add to the public safety and welfare of Oregonians. However, there are actual initiatives being suggested which will have a marked positive effect.
