Can firearms be kept safely in homes with young children? Yes, with proper precautions . Millions of North Americans have guns at home and do so safely . Around one-half of homes in the US possess guns as do about one-third of homes in Canada.
Thanks to a widespread culture of safety in Canada and the United States , firearms can be owned safely by anyone willing to take responsibility and learn appropriate safety procedures . The risks of firearm ownership have been exaggerated by opponents of civilian gun ownership. Again and again . Young children should be taught not to touch firearms , and when they are old enough to accept more responsibility, they should be taught how to handle firearms safely . Statistics show that children face minimal risk from firearms in the home with responsible parents.

Firearm ownership imposes serious safety challenges so that owners must act responsibly to ensure their own safety as well as the safety of their family, neighbors, and community. The evidence shows that both American and Canadian firearms owners are responsible and safety conscious. This may be surprising given the horrific news stories about children wounded or killed by guns in the home. Such sensationalism attract “eyeballs,” but official records show that firearms accidents are infrequent and have continued to fall over the past decades. Accidental deaths, United States (1999-2019)

Anti-gun activists exaggerate the risks of firearm ownership in order to evoke public support for additional legal restrictions on civilian firearms. Their mantra is that firearms in the home increase the risk of unintentional shootings, suicide, and homicide. Such claims are based on irrational fears bolstered by pseudo-science .

PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
