June 21 is National ASK Day. Do you ASK if there is a #gun where your child plays #ASKingsaveslives


Today is the first day of summer. Kids are home and so are guns. That’s why we pledge to ASK if there is a gun where your child visits or plays today, National ASK Day, and every day. 
Asking saves kids from gun tragedies. Did you know that more than one in three homes with kids has a gun? 
Don’t find out the hard way. Join this life-saving campaign by sharing this message today,and by posting your own pledge 
as your Facebook status on June 21, 2013.  





CPYV created the ASK (Asking Saves Kids) Campaign in collaboration with the
American Academy of Pediatrics. Based on the astonishing fact that over one
third of homes with children has a gun, many of which are kept unlocked or
loaded, ASK encourages parents to ask if there are guns in the homes where their
children play. It is a simple idea that has the potential to save lives every day.

We realize that the topic of guns and gun violence is dear to many parents who have strong beliefs about our rights to own guns and more. That is not what this message is about at all.
We simply want to raise awareness to the fact that many parents never bother to ask the simple question "do you have a gun in your house?" when sending your child over to another child's house to play. Statistics show that most gun owners do not mind at all if you ask them the question. 
When you send your child to play or spend the night at another child's house you would ask about pets if your child was allergic to animals, you would give the other parent a list of allergies if your child could not have certain foods wouldn't you?
