Last Updated: May 20, 2019.

(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:

  • Keep the gun unloaded and locked away.
  • 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.
