An enormous number of children in America live in homes where guns are easily accessible. According to recent survey data, roughly 43% of American households with kids have guns in them, and more than 1.2 million elementary school students alone have access to firearms in their homes. In all households with guns, 28% of them do not always keep their gun(s) in a secure, locked location where they cannot be accessed by children. Only 25% of gun-owners with children in the house "occasionally" lock and store bullets in a separate location from the gun. Many Americans have become desensitized to school violence, and the problem of guns in school persists. Regrettably, schools continue to be a very dangerous place for kids in America.
