Gun sales increased 64 percent in 2020 and with kids spending more time at home during the COVID-19 pandemic the risks of gun violence have grown―making it even more important that firearms are stored securely. Consider:
-Each year in the United States, nearly 350 children ages 17 and under gain access to a firearm and unintentionally shoot themselves or someone else
-Every year, nearly 700 children, 17 and under, die by suicide with a gun.
