Petition Closed

Each year numerous children are injured or die because of guns and ammunition as well as other weapons being carelessly stored and easily accessible for children to get a hold of in the home. While it is our right to own and bear arms, parents have the duty to protect their children from such things that can harm or kill them. Recently such a tragedy occurred in Nicholas County where a loaded firearm was left unsecured and a 10 year old boy shot and fatally wounded himself in the head. The parent and guardian failed to properly secure the weapon in a safe manner thereby causing harm to a minor child
