13 kids die from guns every day. But there is a way you can protect your child. Ask your family and friends if there’s an unlocked gun in the house. It can save a life and it doesn’t kill to ask.
Guns are Now the leading
Cause of Death for Kids.

How To Start Asking

Hospitals across America urge parents to ask about unlocked guns

For the first time ever, guns have overtaken all other causes of death in children. That’s why hospitals across America are uniting to fight gun violence. Our goal? Reduce injuries and deaths caused by firearms by developing prevention strategies that are part of routine health care. By mobilizing a national coalition of health care leaders, we can depolarize gun safety and overcome this national health epidemic.
