If your child sees a gun, teach them to:
"It won't happen to us" is a common theme among children and accidental injuries such as gun shootings. However, the numbers tell a different story. In 2017, there were at least 26 children ages 0-11 in the state of Texas alone that were accidentally killed because a gun was not safely locked away. And there are many more children who have suffered severe injuries with life-changing results.
We can't assume that a child doesn't know where the guns in the house are hidden or that they do not know how to operate one. Children are exposed to violence and guns through media and video games and it may be difficult for them to separate which one is real and which one is not.
You must explain to your kids how a gun on TV or a video game is much different than one in real life. In addition, BB and pellet guns have been proven to be dangerous, despite the common belief that they are harmless.
Here are a few very important reasons to do the Aimf for Safety 3 step:
Cook Children's is looking for parents of children ages 4-12 years old to participate in a gun safety research project.
The study takes place on the Cook Children's main campus in Fort Worth, TX, and participants must be willing to attend the onsite sessions.
This project is being conducted by Dan Guzman, M.D., a Cook Children's Emergency Department physician.
