ASK

 

 I ask because:

 

  • Every 3 hours a child or teen is killed in a firearm related incident
  • For every child that is killed by a firearm 4 more are injured

  • Firearm injuries in the U.S. are the 2nd leading cause of deaths in youths ages 15-24

  • More children in the U.S. die from gunfire that from cancer, pneumonia, influenza, and HIV/AIDS combined

  • Most 3 year olds can pull the trigger of a gun

  • Not asking is too high a risk

Asking is simple. “My child is so curious these days I need to ask, is there an unlocked gun in your house?"

June 21 is National ASK Day!

Help save lives:

Today and every day, I pledge to ASK if there is a gun where my child visits or plays. More than one in three homes with kids has a gun. Tragic gun accidents kill & injure thousands of kids every year.

I pledge to ASK to save lives and protect kids.

Join this life-saving campaign by sharing this message today, and by posting your own pledge as your Facebook status on June 21, 2014.
