The news stories are frightening: a child accidentally shoots a sibling while handling a gun; a child brings a gun to school to settle an argument with a peer; a young person is shot by a stray bullet while playing outside her home.
Incidents like these happen every day in the United States. On an average day in 2002, eight young people were killed by a gun – that's one every three hours (Children's Defense Fund).
The good news is that parents can do a lot to protect their children from gun violence. A good start is to sign the petition for gun owners to lock up their Guns.
Lock it up.
Teach that guns kill.
Explain how to act around guns.
