I was wondering how I should go about convincing my parents on the positive roves of gun ownership. Since I live with my parents, I have discussed with them about my decision to pursue a firearms interest since I felt I needed their approval if I were to purchase a gun. They are not against the idea, but are not sold on the notion that guns are good. My mom sees no point in gun ownership and my dad is concerned with the safety aspect i.e. Keeping the gun locked up when children are present . Any advice? I am taking a class and learning more all the time, but my mom thinks I am obsessed with the idea topic when I listen to firearms related radio programs.
