Gun Safety on the Hunt, at Home and Throughout the Year
The Department of the Interior reported in 2017 that over 101 million Americans, or about 40 percent of the population over 16, participate in wildlife activities. This includes more than 11 million hunters across the nation. Unfortunately, the Centers for Disease Control still record approximately 500 unintentional firearms fatalities a year. But there is good news: That number has been steadily decreasing for the last 20 years. Clearly, we can continue this trend through gun safety education, responsible gun handling and storage, and thorough knowledge of hunting laws.
