Gun Safety

Gun violence is one of the most common killers of children in America. One-third of all families in America have guns in their home. Having a gun in the home significantly increases the chances of an accidental or intentional firearm injury or death to you or a child in your home.

If there is a gun in the house, it is very important to make sure proper gun safety is being practiced by the owner, especially when children live there or visit often.
