49: Guns at Home and COVID-19

Staying at home in order to practice social distancing amid COVID-19 means that millions of children and family members will be spending more time in close proximity to firearms. And we all know kids are curious, and they can find everything — including a gun you thought was “hidden." These factors make it more important than ever that we ensure our homes are safe from Family Fire — which is a shooting involving an improperly stored or misused gun in the home that results in death or injury.

So, how do we talk to the people we know and love — including our kids, neighbors, spouses, and more — about guns right now? For this minisode, host JJ is joined by Dr. Kyleanne Hunter, Vice President of Programs at Brady, and Leslie LaRue, a gun owner, mom, and PTA leader in Austin, Texas.
