    Thank you to the B Town Blog for providing the community with this important opportunity for making our families safer. Growing up in eastern Washington, I spent hundreds of hours hunting. As a result, I have firearms. For our entire life as parents, we made sure that our firearms were secure from access by children, but accessible if our family was threatened. When ever our children wanted to visit the home of a new friend, I would call the parents and explain that I do not care if they owned firearms, I just wanted to make sure that children did not have access to them. It always amazed me how many parents said that they had never been asked for this information before. Responsible gun ownership requires that our firearms are controlled and not accessible to children. Period. There is no negotiation on this issue. Our children deserve our emphasis on protecting them from fire arm tragedies. If you have firearms and children in your home, your firearms must be secure and locked.
