I told her I wanted my kids to know guns are dangerous and to know how to handle them. This way if they are ever in a position where somebody is handling a gun in a dangerous way they can get out of there and be safer. If they don't know its unsafe bad things can happen. Thankfully she agreed.
Thats exactly how it was at my house. I explained that if you hide something then they become curious about it. I want her to have the experience and knowledge to make up her own mind as she grows. If it turns out she does not like it oh well. If she does like it, I can already see the competitiveness in her she will do it well with it.
