Safe Gun Storage
Guns are now the leading cause of death for minors in the country. Virtually every day, children are shot and injured, or sometimes killed, by firearms improperly stored. About 75% of shootings at schools are due to minors having access to guns at home. Over 80 % of teens who commit suicide with a gun used one that belonged to someone in their home.
Gun ownership is a right in the US and comes with substantial responsibilities. It is a crime to store a loaded firearm where a child might gain access to that firearm.
