Action Alert: Promote Safe Gun Storage

Safe Gun Storage


In 2015, Ethan Song was only 15 years old when he was unintentionally shot and killed with an unsecured gun in his best friend’s house. Tragically, Ethan is not alone. Every day, eight children and teens are unintentionally injured or killed due to family fire, which refers to a shooting caused by someone having access to a gun from the home when they shouldn’t have it. This includes children as well as those who display behavior that indicates they could harm themselves or others.

Roughly 4.6 million children live in homes with access to an unlocked or unsupervised gun, and 76% of school shootings are facilitated by kids having access to unsecured or unsupervised guns found in their home, or the home of a relative or friend.

Now more than ever it is imperative that firearms are stored safely, which means locked, unloaded, and separate from ammunition. Ethan’s Law would create federal requirements for safe gun storage when there is a reasonable belief that children or other prohibited individuals would be able to access guns.

🚨   Send a Letter: Promote Ethan’s Law to Support Safe Gun Storage

Promise the Children stands with Brady United in urging the U.S. Senate to support Ethan’s Law to establish federal requirements for safe gun storage. This legislation will save lives.

This sensible safe gun storage measure, which is supported by gun owners and non-gun owners alike, would help end preventable tragedies nationwide. Please show your support for this life-saving legislation today.
