Armas de Fuego

Muchos hogares en los EE.UU. tienen algún tipo de arma de fuego. Sin embargo, tener un arma de fuego en el hogar aumenta el riesgo de muerte y lesiones no intencionales entre los niños.

Un problema común es que los adultos subestiman la capacidad del niño para llegar a un arma de fuego en el hogar. Los niños a menudo no son capaces de distinguir la diferencia entre un arma de verdad y las armas de juguete. Los niños tampoco son capaces de hacer buenos juicios sobre cómo manejar un arma de fuego de forma segura.

Para mantenerse a salvo de las armas de fuego a su hijo, considere si vale la pena el riesgo de tener un arma en su casa. Si usted decide tener un arma de fuego, almacenar con seguridad el arma de fuego bajo llave y fuera del alcance. Mantenga las municiones en un lugar separado, cerrado desde el arma de fuego real.

Hable con su hijo sobre los peligros de las armas de fuego. Enseñe a su niño a nunca tocar o jugar con armas, y para decirle a un adulto si él o ella encuentra un arma.
