I haven’t brainwashed my kids about gun rights. I haven’t used my parental authority to force them to respect Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. I’ve discussed the facts about firearms freedom with them, endlessly, taken them to the range, occasionally, and let them reach the right conclusions.
That’s my story and I’m sticking with it. In truth, yeah, I probably have brainwashed them. Why wouldn’t I? Not only do I consider gun rights fundamental to our survival as both individuals and a free society, I want my progeny to protect themselves by force of arms when they reach the age of majority.
And I feel it my obligation to protect my children from the mis- and disinformation about gun rights they encounter in school and amongst their friends. In other words, if I don’t “brainwash” them someone else will. In the wrong direction.
Anyway, scare quotes around brainwashing there. Because I’m not sure exactly what that term means when it comes to equipping young minds with their core beliefs. Anyway, are you a pro-gun rights brainwasher?
