If we are living in a perfect world, then I would agree with your view. However, the real world today is far from being perfect. It will never be. Shielding them from the harsh realities will only 'protect' them, only temporarily. I am for introducing the realities to young ones progressively as I, as a parent, feel when they can handle it. I admit that, in terms of timing, I may not be right each time. But, to 'shield' them is not an option at all. Boys here will eventually be enlised into NS. Even if there is no NS here, my view on this issue remains status quo.

If I had used '9yo son shot BY live rounds', then it would have been misleading.
