Regardless of gun ownership, parents who have talked to their children about gun safety guidelines are more confident that their kids will practice gun safety than parents who have not talked with their children.
With firearms in about one-third of the approximately 35 million U.S. households with children under 18, discussion of gun safety is something all parents need to consider. Parents in non-gun-owning households simply cannot assume that their children will never encounter a situation involving firearms.
However, these poll results indicate that over half of non-gun owning parents have never discussed gun safety with their children age 5-17. It is also concerning that nearly 1 in 5 gun-owning parents have never discussed gun safety with their children. As a result, many children may be unprepared to understand and follow the basics of gun safety.

Kurylenko delivers forgettable work in a forgettable role. Banderas, on the other hand, opted to GO BIG OR GO HOME, and the nicest thing I can say about that is he would have been better off going home.

The operating agreements of many business ventures include clauses to facilitate the exit of joint owners. In so-called Texas Shootouts, one owner names a single buy-sell price and the other owner is compelled to either buy or sell shares at that named price. Despite their prevalence in real-world contracts, Texas Shootouts are rarely triggered. In our theoretical framework, sole ownership is more efficient than joint ownership. Negotiations are frustrated, however, by the presence of asymmetric information. In equilibrium, owners eschew buy-sell offers in favor of simple offers to buy or to sell shares and bargaining failures arise. Experimental data support these findings.

My past dog training experiences have proved that most dog problems are manmade. Gun shyness is one of them. In fact, I have seen and heard of several methods about how to break a dog of gun shyness. However, I have been taught that the best way to introduce gunfire to a dog is to keep the dog focused on a certain object, such as a bird. Then, while they are excited about the bird, you can introduce gunfire.
First start out with a blank gun until they get used to it. You can slowly introduce them to louder guns as they become more comfortable with the blast. This prevents the dog from being scared of the loud noises.
After a few days of this we were able to take her to the field, and she was anxious to find the birds on her own. Once she went on point my friend kicked the bird up, she went after it and I pulled the trigger on the blank gun about 20 yards away. At first she stopped and looked back to see where the noise came from then went back to see where the bird went. I slowly worked closer to her sounding the gun each time a bird got up. Eventually, I was able to shoot the blank gun close to where the bird got up.
My GSP (grizz) was gun shy, well he loved to play ball, so I went and bought a Big Red plastic Bat and Ball, that made a real loud sound, we played 4 to 5 times a day, he got used to the bang of the bat and ball and he has been fine, did this for about 3 weeks, we still play ball and hunt, no more gun shy dog.
Start by making a fairly loud noise, such as clapping your hands, and immediately following up with something good. A treat, for instance. Progress to louder and louder noises, always followed by something good.
Continue with the progression, shooting when the dog is closer and closer to you, until you can fire the gun when the dog is within five yards of you. After you get to that stage, try teasing the dog with the bird, firing the gun, and throwing the bird for him. (You may want to let him have this bird to retrieve, by clipping some feathers on one wing so the bird cannot fly away.)
Veterans who have faced combat are more risk-averse when it comes to investing than noncombatants, according to a new Cornell study. As a result, they may struggle to build wealth through long-term investments, the authors say.
Veterans with combat experience were 14 percent to 18 percent less likely than other veterans to invest in such risky assets as mutual funds and stocks, according to the research. There were no differences between the groups, however, in holding safe assets, such as Treasury bonds, certificates of deposit or checking accounts.
The work suggests that traumatic experiences unrelated to the financial sector affect one's investment behavior. Combat veterans appear to be overly cautious and all the worse for it financially, since portfolio choices of stock historically have been critical to economic advancement and building wealth.
\"A person's investment decisions often are influenced by many factors that have nothing at all to do with income, wealth, education or the economy. We found that experiencing a trauma or psychological shock can affect your investment behavior -- even when the trauma is not finance or health related,\" said lead author Vicki L. Bogan, assistant professor of applied economics and management at Cornell's Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management. She added that the results suggest \"that veterans' combat experiences are important to consider with regard to determining and managing veterans benefits.\"
In comparing the investing habits of veterans who said they had faced combat experience with those of veterans who didn't, the researchers controlled for physical health issues and other individual characteristics that have previously been shown to influence investment behavior. The researchers used a 2000 University of Illinois survey that was conducted for a different purpose. Most of the veterans in the sample served in World War II or the Korean or Vietnam wars.
Once veterans come home, education becomes key, Just added. \"With education, the effects of trauma go away -- they will put their money in reasonable risks and obtain normal returns. Without that education they will be at a financial disadvantage the rest of their lives. Strong educational support is one key to recovering from combat.\"
Following on the heels of yet another rash of terrible violence, our country is caught in the cross-hairs of controversy. At the center of the debate is the precarious balance of right and responsibility. While Jessica and I find it difficult to support any sort of gun ownership outside of registered, legal hunting rifles, we also recognize that our beliefs represent just one side of our divided culture. In hoping to understand the love of guns many in our country share, we turned to legendary sharpshooter Annie Oakley, whose words pierce the heart of the matter.

Despite not being from the West, Annie defined our notion of a cowgirl as a self-reliant, strong woman. She advocated for equal pay, and went to great lengths to defend her reputation. She challenged William Randolph Hearst in a series of libel lawsuits over a false newspaper story, winning 54 of 55 cases at great personal expense. After her retirement in 1913, Annie continued to tour the country, teaching over 15,000 women how to use firearms responsibly.
