“Nearly a third of homes in this country have guns – and approximately 4.6 million children live in homes with guns that are unsecured, exponentially increasing the chance for harm to themselves or others. But these senseless gun deaths and injuries can be 100 percent preventable with proper storage and security measures and collaboration among law enforcement, community organizations, businesses, elected officials and residents,” says NOBLE President Brenda Goss Andrews. “This is a national emergency, so the partnership with Be SMART comes at an opportune time for us to work together to provide widespread education and empower communities to act.”
