Texas gun range to host children’s birthday parties
By Eric Pfeiffer | The Sideshow – Mon, Jun 4, 2012
A new gun range opening this summer in Lewisville, Texas, will have two rooms available for hosting children's birthday parties. Owner David Prince tells WFAA that the Eagle Gun Range will be available for children as young as eight years old.

Only in Texas? I bet not....
I grew up in NM and I will always, for the rest of my life, associate gun ranges with drinking booze. Maybe things are different now (I grew in in the 60s and 70s) but every time I ever visited a gun range in NM or TX, most of the adults were wasted. Has this culture changed? (I'm not saying it hasn't... maybe it has. I hope so).
I am not sure that I see the problem. I assume the two activities are basically unrelated from the POV of the customers. They would be in separate areas on the same property. Not kids mixing in with the other users.
Some of my favorite times with my stepfather as a child occurred at a gun/archery range.
Ya gotta love Texas, as long as they aren't using the kids for target practice, I don't see anything wrong with the gun range hosting children's birthday parties.
If you regard guns as an acceptable hobby or as a necessity in today's world, then why not introduce children to guns in a safe environment?
Not being a hunter, what is the age to get a hunter's class diploma? If older, why would it be necessary to train 8 year olds with a gun? Are they old enough to respect the firearm? I don't know? Looking for input.
When a couple of my grandkids hear about this, they'll want their birthday parties at shooting ranges! lol. I don't think you can begin teaching firearm safety early enough.
In GA, any age can hunt. Those under the age of 12 have to be under the supervision of an adult. 12 and older can hunt without an adult.

Remember when birthday parties were simple? They were mostly held at home, with simple party games. You provided the food and cake, which was nothing more than one cloaked with buttercream icing. Well, most parents...

Few tragedies have struck America like the gunning down of 30 school children in Connecticut last month. Yet, little more than a month later, gun rights advocates, including White supremacist groups such as...
