What does GRASP actually do? GRASP will be having and hosting events at schools, public libraries and other private and public settings. Monies raised will be utilized to give out gun locks, gun safes, pay for safety classes and CHL of PARENTS. A gun safety program was created geared towards kids and their parents. All participating children and adolescents will get a pledge award to sign and take home with them as a pledge and reminder of what they learned at one of the GRASP events. Parents and guardians will be taught about the dangers of desensitizing children with extremely NON AGE appropriate video killing games and how to better explain the difference between reality and movies. We emphasize that human life should never be devalued in any format that’s not age appropriate. What seems like common sense to an adult is nothing but to a growing child. Children and parents alike will be taught the differences and dangers of BB guns, paintball guns etc. versus actual weapons / guns. Parents must realized that children can sometimes find it extremely difficult to distinguish the two. Parents need as much or more gun education than children. Most accidental deaths and adolescent suicides happen in homes with unsecured weapons. GRASP hopes to target children and gun owners who are PARENTS to educate and inform them about the dangers of causal gun ownership. Gun safety is definitely a topic that always needs to be reiterated. #GRASPCARES #safetyfirst #gunsafety #gunawareness GRASP 5111 N 10th Street #238 McAllen, TX 78504

When it comes to kids and adolescents it’s usually an impulse that is the cause for most child involved gun related tragic incidents and suicides. Parents must TALK to their CHILDREN about gun safety. It’s parents and guardians that are solely responsible for the safety of their children in their home. Keep weapons unloaded, locked up and secured properly away. Your kids are counting on you to keep them safe.

“Somewhere in the U.S. today a child will find a loaded gun in a home. They won’t have to look hard. It will be unlocked and stored in an easily accessible place. The child will pick up the firearm, and soon enough it will go off exactly like it’s supposed to. The bullet will strike a friend, sibling or the child who found the gun in the first place. Someone will be injured or killed. If it’s an average day in America, this scene will play out seven more times somewhere. It will repeat itself again tomorrow.” Those eight children will be the casualties of so-called “family fire,” a term that describes shootings involving unsecured firearms in the home.

THIS INCIDENT ALMOST ALWAYS HAPPENS IN A HOME WHERE THE GUN OWNER HAS SAID, “my kids know better” and “my kids would never touch a gun.” Let that sink in.

What pulls the trigger of any firearm? It’s not a finger, it’s emotion. Fear, depression, anger, curiosity, hate, excitement, stress, anxiety and yes even love are emotions that can drive ANYONE to reach for a firearm. Although many properly use guns for hunting, sport and to defend their homes or person regretfully weapons are also used in both suicides and homicides. Usually it’s simple curiosity that is the cause for most child involved gun related incidents Emotions pull triggers.
Pay attention. Make an effort and do not ignore your child’s emotional needs. Parents you absolutely must TALK TO YOUR CHILDREN about gun safety. You must stay on top of their emotional needs. Ignoring a child’s temperament is not proactive in the fight against child gun related incidents. It’s parents and guardians that are solely responsible for the safety of their children. Keep your weapons unloaded, locked up and secured.

You have a right to bear arms and a fierce obligation to properly secure them. Unsecured household guns are the major source of weapons used by youth in violence against themselves and others. Most guns used in youth suicides, gun violence among children and school shootings are acquired from THEIR HOME or the homes of relatives or friends. Adult parent gun owners must accept the devastating reality that these tragic incidents are solely caused by irresponsibility, complacency, slacked gun safety and loose gun storage protocols in their home. It’s the gun owners fault children and adolescents are accessing their weapons. An unsecured gun at home can become a loaded weapon at school or be the cause of senseless violence, homicide and even child suicide. It’s someones fault children, teens and adolescents are getting their hands on handguns. Parents do your job by protecting your kids. Secure your firearms at all times when not in use. Make sure to keep all guns unloaded, locked up and properly secured away inaccessible to children and others.

If preventing and ending child violence, suicides, accidents and school shootings is TRULY the mission than all efforts must shift to PROPER GUN STORAGE and PARENT GUN EDUCATION. GUN SAFETY isn’t about politics, more laws or the second amendment, it’s about keeping children safe — and alive. 78% of school shooters get their firearms from their home or relatives. An unsecured gun at home can be a loaded gun at school.
Rates of death from firearms among children and adolescents has drastically increased due to unsecured firearms, slacked gun safety and of course complacency. In the United States, middle- and high school-age children are now more likely to die as the result of a firearm injury than from any other single cause of death that they most likely got from their own home or that of a close friend or relative. UNSECURED WEAPONS are the root cause of all these child and adolescents tragedies; the fault however is 100% the adult gun owner.

Parents, an unsecured gun at home can become a loaded weapon at school or be the cause of senseless violence, homicide and even child suicide. It’s someones fault children, teens and adolescents are getting their hands on handguns. Parents do your job by protecting your kids. Secure your firearms at all times when not in use. Make sure to keep all guns unloaded, locked up and properly secured away inaccessible to children and others.

What does GRASP actually do?

GRASP will be having and hosting events at schools, public libraries and other private and public settings. Monies raised will be utilized to give out gun locks, gun safes, pay for safety classes and LTC courses for PARENTS with young children residing in their household along with a plethora of gun safety education gear and learning products specifically geared for young children and adolescents.

A gun safety program was created and geared towards kids (THE GREAT GRASP KIDS CLUB). All participating children and adolescents will get a pledge certificate award to sign and take home with them as a pledge and reminder of what they learned at one of the GRASP SAFETY events. Parents will be urged to frame and hang their children’s SAFETY CERTIFICATES as a reminder of what their children learned.

Parents and guardians will be taught about the dangers of desensitizing children with extremely NON AGE appropriate video killing games and how to better explain the difference between reality and movies. We emphasize that human life should never be devalued in any format that’s not age appropriate. What seems like common sense to an adult is nothing but to a growing child.

Children and parents alike will be taught the differences and dangers of BB guns, paintball guns etc. versus actual weapons / guns. Parents must realized that children can sometimes find it extremely difficult to distinguish the two.
