Locking up guns could decrease children and teen deaths

May 15, 2019
Pediatricians at Harvard Medical School conducted a study about the amount of children and teens that can be saved if parents locked up their unloaded guns in their households. About a third of the accidental fatalities by guns could be decreased if preventive actions were taken. According to a national survey, over 14,000 deaths were reported to have been caused by accidental misplacement of guns in the household. Experts say if 10% of the people did it, 50 people would be alive; while if actions were taken by 50% of the people, 251 more victims could have been saved. Experts say parents need to be careful about what they show to their children since kids and teens are easily impressionable.
