Gun Safety for Big Kids
Kids under 8 often can’t tell the difference between a toy gun and a real one. Yet children age 3 and up are often strong enough to pull the trigger on a real gun. Here are some tips to protect your children from guns.
Top Safety Tips
- The most effective way to keep kids safe from gun injuries is to have no guns in a home where children live or play.
- Keep kids from accessing firearms by storing ammunition and firearms separately, keeping guns unloaded and locked away, and ensuring that both are safely out of reach.
- Teach kids never to touch a gun and to immediately tell an adult if they see one.
