Parents ask all sorts of questions to protect their children when they play at the home of a friend, neighbor or relative. But there is one important question that more than half of parents say never even occurred to them to ask: “Is there a gun where my child plays?”
ASK Day takes place on the first day of every summer, a time of year when children play more often in other homes, to remind parents nationwide about the importance of asking if there are guns where their kids play.
National ASK Day is June 21st. For information on ASK Day, suggested activities and ASK statistics please read the Parent/Community Action Toolkit- National ASK Day 2013.
