Preventing firearm-related injuries in young children is a public health priority. Firearm fatalities are the third leading cause of injury-related deaths in US children, and firearms within the family home put children at risk.1 Practices to mitigate this risk include storing firearms locked and unloaded, with ammunition also locked and stored separately.
