Asking Saves Kids

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 than 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
