America. Let me put something to you.
There are two things nearly all of us agree should be reserved for adults rather than children: sex and death.
Pornography can potentially lead to sex. It is created for the purpose of sex.
Guns can potentially lead to death. They are created for the purpose of death.
Ownership of pornography in this country is protected by the First Amendment.
Ownership of guns in this country is protected by the Second Amendment.
It is illegal to provide pornography to minors.
It is perfectly legal to provide firearms to minors.
A child is not permitted to possess visual masturbation aids.
A child is permitted to possess a weapon that can kill himself or others.
A parent will be prosecuted and vilified for providing pornography to a five-year-old.
A parent is allowed to provide a five-year-old with a gun.
Organizations like NAMBLA who believe that children are ready for sex are vilified politically.
Organizations like the NRA who believe that children are ready for guns are proudly championed politically.
Do you believe in providing children with guns? In my eyes, you are as irresponsible and perverted as a parent who provides their children with In Anal Sluts We Trust #6. Honestly. That's how awful you are.
Do you believe that children should learn about guns and death for their own safety? Fine; you can educate children about death and guns without giving them access to guns, just as you can educate children about sex and arousal without giving them access to pornography and dildos. Use diagrams. Use educational videos. Use models of guns. In sex education, teachers give children plastic models of vaginas and penises. They don't drop their drawers and allow them to touch actual vaginas and penises. Children do not have the maturity to handle actual sexual contact any more than they have the maturity to handle a deadly weapon.
It should be illegal to provide a minor with a firearm.
What the hell is wrong with you people.
