Firstly, exposing children to guns and gun education will take away from the curiosity they might have later in life that would have led to an issue or incident. Sex education has shown that this method is effective because when a child is educated they will have a greater understanding about the dangers and other aspects of guns they wouldn’t have known about beforehand. Just like Jamie O’Meara (2000) was saying “that sex education is taught so that kids will have a better understanding of how their bodies work, why they feel sexual desires, and how to act (or not) on those desires”. Children will gain the confidence to make responsible choices when it comes to gun use and resulting in making better decisions. The media puts this image in children’s heads that there is something fun about having a gun and also that it gives you power and you can control people with it.

Even though there was a lot of things in the Autobiography that parents may not find okay for students to read, they need to understand that things like that can happen anywhere in the world.
