KEEPING GUNS AWAY FROM CHILDREN
It would be surprising to hear that there are people who have a love for guns. These set of people would love to have one in their possession and carry with them everywhere they go.
This love for gun is very likely fueled by the desire to offer themselves the best of protection, owing to the fact that the world is not really a safe place to leave yourself unprotected.

It has also implanted in the minds of people, how they should use a gun to react when they are threatened.
This obsessive love for guns have also affected children. As a matter of fact, if you see a child with a gun, there is a likely chance that the closest adult nearby would be the owner of the gun.
This is however careless because children are individuals who like to test new and fascinating things, and owing to the fact that they have seen it used at some point on the Television, they would want to give it a try.
Not everyone is allowed to keep a gun, except if you have got a license, and when you do, there are certain rules and regulations which you need to stick with while in possession of the gun. One of such rules is keeping it away from the reach of children.
If a child is found in possession of a gun, there are certain disciplinary measures which awaits both the guardian of the child, and the owner of the gun, which in most cases, is the same person.
Hence, for parents and guardians to avoid this, they need to ensure they keep guns hidden away in plain sight from children. These guns should only be used when there is a need for it.
Keeping guns away from children is one of the best ways to reduce the mortality rate, because there is no telling what they could do with it, when it is in their possession.
