Birthday Parties and Bullets?: Owner Defends Hosting Birthday Parties for Kids at Texas Gun Range
Critics are protesting a new gun range in Texas that lets kids learn how to shoot at eight years old. The range is even open for kids birthday parties!
David Prince, the co-owner of the Eagle Gun Range, joined Fox and Friends this morning to respond to the controversy. Prince made it clear that children will be given training by certified instructors prior to entering the range. “This is going to be a well-orchestrated, carefully designed program,” he said.

Prince wants to provide a safe place for children to learn how to use a gun, saying, “We’re providing families a place to bring their children and learn how to safely shoot a gun and that’s our goal. At our range, education and instruction are our paramount mission statement.”
“Kids are going to be around guns no matter what … they’re in the video games. Why not show them the difference between toys and real guns, and what toys and real guns will do?” he asked.
