With millions of kids at home, we must make sure firearms are stored securely.

The COVID-19 crisis has created new challenges for parents. Kids are out of school and spending more time at home. The boredom and isolation they may be feeling pose additional risks to their safety. Securing all guns in the home—storing them locked, unloaded, and separate from ammunition—can save your child’s life.
