"My 16-year-old, 15-year-old, and 9-year-old are here," she said in the story. "Up until 4 or 5 years ago, I was one of those moms. I was nervous about guns. I didn't let my kids have the little water guns. I was afraid of them, but it wasn't until I learned how to safely handle a weapon and learn that the weapon is not going to go off on its own. Someone has to pull the trigger. So I just want my kids to be safe, and we don't live in a safe world anymore."
