Universal Firearm Safety
Rather than shy away from letting children know guns are present in the home, studies and data show accidents are less likely to happen if everyone is aware of the presence of firearms and what to do if they see one, have an emergency or another circumstance arises when a gun is present. There are many universal best practices involving guns, whether you plan to shoot one or not, and informing entire families of these practices helps keep everyone safe. In our course, we cover the rules of safe gun handling, which include:
- Always point guns safely (preferably straight down)
- Keep your finger off the trigger until you’re shooting
- Know what is behind your target
- Treat all guns as if they are loaded
By educating all family members on these and other key points, you can create a culture of safe gun practices.
We go over best practices, firearm safety and other key components in these courses, but they are designed as one instructor per family for a reason. Our team members can help you address your specific safety concerns and make a plan for your unique situation. The types of guns, layout of your home, age and number of family members and more all contribute to the ideal plan to keep you all safe.
