State and City Proclamations to be Signed at Esther Short Park Event
In America, one out of three homes with children has a gun, many kept unlocked or loaded. In the state of Washington, 20% of homes with a gun don't store it in a safe or other secure location.
Parents ask all sorts of questions before their children visit other homes. They ask about pets in the house, discuss allergies and Internet access, and ask questions about supervision.
The Asking Saves Kids (ASK) Campaign encourages parents to add one more question to this conversation: “Is there an unlocked gun in your house?" It’s a simple question, but it has the power to save a child’s life.
June 21st is National ASK Day and will be celebrated in Vancouver by local officials encouraging the community to help protect our children by asking one simple question. Join State Senator Annette Cleveland, State Representative Jim Moeller, Vancouver Asst. Police Chief Mike Lester and other special guests at Esther Short Park in Vancouver on Tuesday June 17 at 11:30am to sign the state and city proclamations.
ASK Day reminds parents about the importance of ASKing if there is an unlocked gun where their children play. This ASK Day, pledge to ASK at www.askingsaveskids.org.
