Zero Fatalities

Firearm Safety

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to reducing gun deaths and injuries. A simple preventative approach we recommend to those who handle guns is to follow the 4 universal rules of firearm safety.

  • Treat all firearms as if they are always loaded.

  • Never let the muzzle point at anything you are not willing to destroy.

  • Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made the decision to shoot.

  • Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

Another responsible action to take to reduce firearm injury is to keep your firearms unloaded and locked when not in use. The National Rifle Association (NRA) recommends that firearms be stored unloaded and locked away until you want to use them. Keep your ammunition in a locked safe that is separate from your gun safe. Storing ammunition away from your guns will lower the risk of your child or other family members putting the ammunition into the gun.


SEUHD has gun locks that are free to the public. Visit our office to get one today!

As our kids return to in-person learning, e-cigarette use may not feel like our biggest concern. But the youth vaping epidemic rages on, with almost 4 million middle- and high-schoolers vaping, the majority of them using flavors. Back among their peers, with COVID-fueled anxiety on the rise, kids will have much easier access to these dangerous devices. After all, there’s a reason kids refer to the high-school bathroom as the “JUUL room.”

At the same time, the FDA is undergoing a long-delayed Premarket Tobacco Product Application review process of millions of flavored e-cigarettes, which the agency has allowed to remain on the market without full regulation for years. Under court order, FDA has promised a decision by September 9 on whether or not these products--including, most notably, menthol JUUL--are “necessary to protect public health.” We parents already know the answer: menthol JUULs, along with all other flavored e-cigarettes, are harming and addicting our kids!
