Be SMART - Secure Gun Storage

Every year in the United States, 350 children aged 17 and under gain access to a firearm and unintentionally shoot themselves or someone else. Nearly 700 more die by suicide with a gun.

Everytown for Gun Safety launched the Be SMART campaign to address these preventable tragedies by promoting responsible gun ownership to reduce child gun deaths. It seeks to normalize the conversation of gun safety and help gun owners understand their responsibility when it comes to securely storing their firearms. The campaign educates and encourages parents and caretakers to “Be SMART” and take these five simple steps to help prevent shootings by children: 

  • Secure all guns in your home and vehicles
  • Model responsible behavior around guns
  • Ask about the presence of unsecured guns in other homes
  • Recognize the role of guns in suicide
  • Tell your peers to Be SMART

The death of a child impacts our entire community, scarring the lives of family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and more. Every adult can play a role in keeping children safe from accessing guns. When it comes to kids’ safety, we’re all in this together! 


Visit or text 64433 to learn more, download resources, and get involved.
