Health Tip: Safely Storing Guns
(HealthDay News) --Every year, thousands of people in the United States are injured or killed by guns, says KidsHealth. If you decide to keep a gun in your home, proper storage can help keep your family safe.
If you have a gun at home, KidsHealth urges:

- Lock the bullets in a place separate from the gun.
- Hide the keys to both storage places.
KidsHealth notes that the best way to prevent gun injuries is to avoid keeping these weapons in your home.
