How careful are you when handling guns? Your child will look to you as a role model. You need to act safely.
Can you check off each of the following?
☐ I have spoken to my child about what to do if he or she sees a gun.
☐ If I own a gun, I have had proper training on how to use, care for, and store it.
☐ I keep my gun stored in a locked location and store the bullets in a separate locked location.
☐ I set a good example for my child on the safe use and handling of guns.
☐ I keep a gun log book. I write down when I talk with my child about guns. I also record when I maintain my gun or buy any new gun.
