Thanksgiving — along with Christmas, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day — are times when we often gather with family and friends. We may celebrate these occasions at someone else’s home or others may gather at our home.
The holidays are a good time to make sure children are safe when the adults may be engaged in lively conversations, political arguments or watching football games. If you have children and will be visiting someone else’s home, ask, in advance, if there are any firearms in the home. If there are, ask if they are securely stored.
If you have family and/or friends with children visiting your home, make sure any firearms you might have been safely stored in a gun safe and secured with a trigger lock. All ammunition needs to be securely stored, also, out of the reach of curious children.
This is a season of celebrations. Let’s take the extra step of helping to ensure it is a season our children will live to celebrate, next year.
