GUN SAFETY TIPS FOR PARENTS
If you keep a handgun in your home, always keep it unloaded and locked up!
Always lock and store bullets separately from your gun. Young children can figure out how to load a gun.
Keep a gun lock on your gun after it is unloaded. [Gun locks are excellent devices when used in combination with other safety habits. Gun locks can provide a false sense of security. All it takes is forgetting to lock a gun just one time. Or leaving the key where a child can find it. Always be diligent when using a gun lock. Always double check to make sure that it is locked at all times.
Make sure children don't have access to the keys to gun locks and gun and ammunition storage areas.
Even if you don't own a gun, talk with your children about the danger of guns and what to do if they find one while playing or at a friend's house.
Explain to your children that guns are dangerous and that they should never touch them.
