On today’s episode of Hear Me Out… safety on.
July sees the most accidental shootings involving children of any month on the calendar — but there’s not really a month where these tragedies don’t happen.
So put aside your feelings on gun control for a moment and consider: how, in the world we live in right now, can we protect children from their own curiosity?
Our guest, author Yehuda Remer, argues that teaching kids what guns can do — and how they can keep themselves safe — is the best solution.
