An additional 17 percent said this is the case most of the time, while a minority 33 percent said that this never happens. The Pew poll also showed that for 67 percent of owners, a major reason for having a gun is for protection.

While this desire is completely understandable, with an average of one child under the age of twelve dying due to an accidental firearms accident every week, the inherent risks for a family may outweigh the gains unless the weapon is securely stored.

    Well, over 300 people are murdered each and every week in the United States. So, while an accidental death is tragic, at a rate of 300 to 1, let common sense determine how families decide to address the issues.

    Yea or just teach your children that they are a machine that needs respect and training for its safe operation, you do know how to safely handle your guns don’t you? If not please find someone who will show you the way. Then have them help you teach your children. You learned how to drive a machine in the highways, that machine is responsible for many times over the amount of death and destruction of a machine designed to propel a bullet.

    I’d like to know how many are gang related wild shots that accidently killed a child under 12. Not about to pay $300+ to find out.
