(KMOV.com) – A state run program is putting guns in the hand of kids as young as 4-years-old.

Children are sitting in hunting classes run by the Missouri Department of Conservation. Some are saying it is too young for children to learn about guns, while organizers say it is about teaching safety early.

"The quicker we learn about things, the less curious we are about them," said Mike Brooks, a supervisor with the program.
