Memphis is a city with an unfortunate amount of violent crime. As a result, a lot of citizens keep and carry guns to protect themselves or their families. I would dare say that most of these gun owners are law-abiding and responsible with their guns. Unfortunately, it just takes one unlocked and unsupervised gun to result in tragedy.
If you own a gun, please keep it inaccessible to children. I also recommend taking it a step further and teaching your children about gun safety. You just cannot be too careful when it comes to your children.
