    Convincing my parents to let me buy a bow/ hunt?

    Ik this has been asked but my situation is different. My mother is dead set against hunting and weapons of any kind. She did not grow up with it, and does not want any weapons in her house (likely because of all of this school/mall shooting stuff) So obviously, getting a firearm is out of the question for now. however, I am trying to convince her to let me get a bow with these ground rules: It is only to be on the range or hunting. Here is her argument: "We all have fits of anger, therefore I do not want something that can kill someone in the house" Any thought about how to convince her? I am 17 years old. If she had some legitimate reason (ie, a family member with a severe mental illness, ect) then I would wait till i am older. But given our current situation (a normal family) I believe this concern is completely unreasonable. Any ideas on how to bring her back down to earth on this subject? Anyone have any tips or suggestions about storing a bow safely in the home?

    only issue with that is I still will be living with her at 18 (i will be 18 in september 2014, the beginning of my senior year of HS) I still would have to abide by her rule of no weapons in the house.

    I'm not one to say it but your under her roof,me I was tagging along before I could walk with my mom hunting,just today I had back pain so bad I couldn't finish cleaning some skulls and sent her a picture of my days stock 5 minutes later she was over helping .its not in your moms bloodline good luck . I couldn't imagine mine any other way.i had my 22 on the table and she grabbed it and shouldered it like old times,tomorrow I'm gonna say my back hurts and get her to change my maceration buckets .lol. You have to make a choice weather you want to listen or not,I got a buddy that was in your shoes on his 18th he left home and hunts every chance he gets and years later his family understands it

    Make a deal with her that the bow will stay in a locked case, to which she has the key that she will give you when you need to use it for shooting or hunting, then when you get back home, bow goes back in the case locked. Bring it to her attention that a bow isn't any more deadly inside the home than all the knives in the kitchen. Print out statistics on how many people have killed another house member with a bow and arrow vs how many have done it with a knife, golf club, baseball bat, etc.

    As hunterdan said, is she willing to live by her own rules and get rid of every knife, every sharp object, anything that can be picked up and swung at someone? Maybe, lay this question on her in a RESPECTFUL way and see her reaction. Your living under her roof so its her way or no way but, IF you haven't shown angry fits of rage with an intent to hurt someone, she should cut the apron strings a bit. Good luck to ya! Damn, I was a lucky kid....
