Product Description: 

The number of kids in America who live in homes where they have access to handguns is enormous. According to survey data, roughly 43% of American households with children have guns in them, and more than 1.2 million elementary school students alone have access to firearms in their homes. In all households with guns, 28% of them do not always keep guns locked and in a secure location where they cannot be accessed by children, and only 25% of gun owners with children in the house "occasionally" lock and store bullets in a separate location from the gun. While Americans may be starting to become desensitized to school violence, the problem of guns in school persists and schools continue to be a very dangerous place for kids in America.
