When And How To Talk To Youth About Firearms

Nov 22, 2019

More than half of all Vermont households have firearms. The majority say they use them for hunting. Gun owner or not, firearm safety is a big conversation in many families with kids. We're in the midst of deer rifle season, and on the next Vermont Edition, we're going to talk about gun safety and how families decide when, and how, to introduce young people to firearms. 

We'll be joined by several guests from Vermont Fish & Wildlife:

  • Col. Jason Batchelder, chief warden
  • Alison Thomas, education manager
  • Robert Raskevitz, chief hunter education instructor

Broadcast on Monday, Nov. 25, 2019 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
