Unintended consequences

If your child is invited to play in a neighbor’s home, please, please inquire if they have a gun. If they do, parents must then ask if the gun is locked up. If there is an unlocked gun in your neighbor’s home, it is not safe for your child to play there. You can invite the neighbor’s child to come play in your home. My friend, Carole Price, who told her young son, “Sure, you can go play at the neighbors,” knows firsthand the agony I seek to prevent. She says, “If you think asking your neighbor if there’s a gun in the home is hard? Trust me. Picking out your child’s coffin is worse.”—America and Its Guns: A Theological Expose, page 110
