Guns in the home

All I hear about on the news anymore is people's right to own a gun. I do not want one in my home but I am realizing how many homes my children visit do or will have one. 

Do you educate your children on guns found/discovered in your or a friends/relative's home when they visit?

We have guns in our house all locked up. One hidden where my child cant get too. And i have been trained and  i know how to use it. We have alot of break-ins in my town. My husband works nights and isnt here. If someone comes into my house, im going to protect myself and my children and shoot that mofo

We live in what I feel is a very safe community. I am more concerned about one going off by accident. Like kid's in the after school specials going "look at my Dad's gun. Isn't it cool?" and then it goes off.

We own a gun and my kids know what it is, what it is used for, and what it can do. We believe in educating our children about guns, so when and if they come across one, there is no mystery.

We have guns and my girls are educated about them. We do no have toy guns or allow them to play with you guns. They know guns can kill.

we have a gun in our house. It is in a safe in the top of the closet and even I can not reach it without standing on something. When our son is old enough he will learn gun safety.

Crime happens everywhere. There is no such thing as a safe environment anymore. All we can do is be prepared

There are 7 guns in my house. Put up where the kids can't get them, not loaded. My kids know gun safety and love shooting when we go out to the farm. My husband is gone 2 straight weeks a month, I dare someone to try and come into my house lol. But where we live, we leave doors unlocked, keys in the vehicles and hell we've left our garage doors wide open alot lol.
