Responsible Gun Storage

The Issue

Every year, nearly 600 children,17 and under, die by suicide with a gun. 4.6 million American children live in homes with guns that are both loaded and unlocked.

Our Approach

The Be SMART program focuses on education and awareness about child gun deaths and responsible gun storage. Learn more about our program on BeSMARTforkids.org.

The Be SMART framework is designed to help parents and adults normalize conversations about gun safety and take responsible actions that can prevent child gun deaths and injuries.
