In Texas Experiment, Kids From Homes With Guns Were Safer With Guns

posted on March 1, 2016

A social experiment conducted recently by Texas police officers produced some interesting findings—that is, if you’re an anti-gunner. According to Fox 17, police placed an unloaded handgun that was rendered inoperable in a room with eight preschool or kindergarten aged children. Within 15 seconds, parents and law enforcement watched as one of the children picked up the gun and passed it around. Many of the children then pointed the gun at the other children in the room and attempted to aim and shoot it. 

Of the eight children in the room, six handled the gun—and all six come from homes that do not have firearms. While the result might not be surprising on its face, the experiment notably revealed that the two children who refused to touch the gun do live in homes with firearms and have been taught the dangers and responsibilities of guns by their parents—proof that firearm safety education can save lives.
