Explaining Gun Safety to Kids
Understanding Gun Safety
Having a conversation with kids about firearms can be difficult, but it is an important step in ensuring they act responsibly when confronted with a gun. Project ChildSafe has developed a suite of resources and tools to help guide parents in having these conversations.
“Just because kids aren’t asking about gun safety, doesn’t mean they don’t have questions. As a parent, if you have guns at home, it’s vital that you have a conversation with your kids about gun safety.”
