Gun Safety PSA, Because Kids Will Be Kids

No matter where you fall on the great gun debate, I think we can ALL agree with this Gun Safety PSA. Because kids will be kids…

Lock ’em up folks. The guns and the vibrators.

You have ALL missed the subtext… which is, ‘Don’t have kids.’

Michael Anderson 1 year ago

So what I get from this, is that it is OK for your kids to get into anything they want. To not teach them respect of property and privacy. Lock it up and hide it, don’t teach to respect it.
The next time you shake your head wondering why kids have no respect today, it’s because you are too busy to teach them.

Things detrimental to children MUST be put up and secured…….. by the way……… what were the moms doing while the kids were gathering up the goods…… maybe paying more attention to their children would be a good addition

I’m loving all of these perfect parents with perfect children who would never succumb to a bit of curiosity/temptation. You’re absolutely delusional. You’re the same parents who will argue with the teacher because your child can do no wrong. You self-proclaimed “super parents” are an interesting group, indeed.

    WOW, you got all that from a three sentence statement. The problem is that the majority of you forgot the meaning of the word, RESPECT. If you teach it, it will take the student into a great life.

Here is a novel idea: How about you teach your children to mind and when they are told to not touch something or not get into something they do what you say. Then you don’t have to worry all the time. If your kids don’t mind, you can’t protect them from anything.

Valerie!! Come-on! This was hardly “sexualizing children.” The whole point of this thing is that “they don’t recognize what they’ve got” and they still play with them, and they still like to make a weapon out of about anything. In this case, sex toys, in a darker scenario, firearms. And yes, familiarizing children with firearm handling and safety is a great thing but it is not the sole answer only part of the solution, the second part being denying all unsupervised access. I’ve been around firearms my whole life and know that even a well trained adult can have an accidental discharge, so a well trained kid certainly can.
On a second note, Valerie you really need to lighten up… go out for a walk, have a drink, tell a joke. Life is a lot more fun laughing at things. “Sexualizing children” by spoofing a sword fight with a vibrator and a dildo? Really???

Yep, even the best-parented, best-trained, best-behaved kid can give into curiosity – even just once. Don’t give kids access to mechanical things that can kill them.

If people locked up their guns LIKE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO, BECAUSE IT’S THE LAW, there would be less incidents with kids and guns.

Some of you are way too serious about this ad. Its just an ad, there is no nudity, no abuse or anything. Stuff happens, serious, I think those who see this as a dirty ad…have dirty minds.

I think this is a great PSA. As a gun owner (including several of those “scary” “black rifles”) I think that every gun owner have to store their guns in a way that is not accessible to children that have not come of age. However, It becomes a problem when states like CA, NY, MA, etc start to mandate “safe storage” for all firearms… that becomes a logistic issue… especially when quick retrieval is needed. however, I agree that if it is not on your hip, or attached to your body, it should be on the safe!

Andres Linsey-Bell 1 year ago

Ok that’s hilarious! While I don’t agree with your gun control stance, I do believe in gun safety. :)

All kids should learn gun safety. Even if you do not own a gun & hate guns. Last year a little boy shot & killed his father. They had visited a friend’s house unexpectedly and the friend had his guns out in a back room. Point is, you never know when your child will be exposed to a gun. Teach them to never mess with someone’s purse or bag. You wouldn’t believe how many people are packing.

    Tiago Garcia 1 year ago

    ABSOLUTELY Karen! I would like to have gun safety and gun avoidance thought to ALL kids.i don’t carry on a purse (and gun instructors strongly disagree) but on my body and I think that’s a great point that gets lost by both sides at times.

My boys are educated about guns and know how to shoot. They don’t just “play” with things they find in our home because they know there are consequences. It’s called parenting people!! I never even had to put cabinet locks in my kitchen because they were taught that they are not allowed in the cabinets.

    Lizette Alvarado Stradford 1 year ago

    well good for u but it has nothing to do with parenting…all kids are different and u just can’t assume cause a kid is curious, that it must be because of their parents…you say that your children won’t play with anything in your house but are u with them 24/7?

I’d feel a lot more comfortable knowing that if my kid was at someone elses house and their parents did no more than keep the gun in the bottom drawer in a shoe box. My kid would be educated enough not to play with the gun. What happens when they are not under your roof? Any and all precautions to keep our kids safe is the point… right? Most kids who get hurt by guns found them while snooping and had no real knowledge of them.
