IA: Local gun club has safety concerns with handgun training for those under 14

Just because we can, doesn't mean we should. That's what leaders at a local gun club said about a provision in Iowa's new firearms law.

Specifically, the section now allowing those under 14 to possess a pistol or revolver while under the direct supervision of an adult. The supervisor has to be 21 or older and must be within ear and eyeshot of the gun user.

The new rule would allow gun clubs to do handgun training for children, but the local Izaak Walton League said they won't.

For years, instructors there have taught gun safety to minors using rifles and shotguns. But, teacher safety is why the group won't be training kids under 14 to use handguns-- even though the state now allows it.

Our local Izaak Walton chapter has ALWAYS left this decision up to parents. Some 10 year olds show more muzzle discipline than some 40 year olds ! Proper training at any age is the answer to safety, and IMHO the earlier the better !
I'd also point out that any gun club/range at an Izaak Walton chapter is only a part of the overall entity - many IW chapters do not even have ranges - and this Chapter's position is theirs only, not necessarily that of the Izaak Walton League of America.
