In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that there were roughly 3,000 children unintentionally shot and 127 killed as a result of irresponsibly stored firearms. One source I found online said we lost about one child per week. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence—the philosophical antithesis to the National Rifle Association (NRA)—says that number is eight per day.

Many of the wounded “children”I attended in an inner-city emergency room were 17 years old, heavily muscled and plastered with gang tats. Regardless, something upon which I suspect everyone can agree is that a single child injured or killed as the result of an improperly stored firearm is one too many.

Guns are present in about one-third of the homes with children in America. That number likely goes up to about 100 percent for those of us who enjoy reading material of the sort you are currently perusing. Gun ownership brings with it certain implicit responsibilities.

By their nature, guns are obviously innately dangerous. Balancing the need for security against the absolute requirement for safety, particularly in homes with young children, is an intrinsic part of responsible gun ownership. In the past, this was an all-or-nothing proposition.

When my own kids were young, I owned enough firepower to arm an infantry platoon— but it was always locked up separately from the ammunition. I was more helpless than your typical left-wing grandmother, but I simply could not risk the possibility that my kids might hurt themselves. Nowadays, Identilock offers a fresh, safe and effective solution to this truly timeless quandary.
