My child received training telling them not to approach or play with a gun. Is that enough to keep them safe?

One study found that young children who go through a week-long gun safety training are just as likely as children with no training to approach or play with a handgun when they find one. Research also shows that the majority of children in gun-owning households know where the guns are stored, even when parents think they do not. This is why it is always an adult’s responsibility to make sure children are never in the presence of unsecured guns.
