Accidental Shootings by Children

Accidental Shootings have impacted communities all over the country.  Children are indeed our future. Each time a child dies society is cheated of the gifts those children had to offer. These incidents impact children of all ages, races and socioeconomic backgrounds. 

Young children are curious about firearms and jump at the opportunity to touch and feel them. Adolescents are enchanted by similarities of real guns and toys and seek to explore their differences. Teens tend to utilize the possession of firearms as a symbol of strength and status. 

Each group may have a different reason for handling firearms but one thing they have in common is the probability of death or serious injury to them or someone close to them.  These incidents are preventable, education is the key.  Purchase Brownie Bear Teaches Gun Safety today.
