Most gun shot accidents occur when a child comes across a gun in the house. The best way to practice gun safety is not to keep a gun at home. However, sometimes this is not possible. Perhaps you or your spouse is a hunter or works in a profession where a gun is required (park ranger, police officer, etc.).
The number one rule to keep kids away from guns at home is to keep them securely locked away. This could be in a gun case or even a closet, but be sure the child does not have access to the keys.
