ASK: 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 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?"
