DESCRIPTION:

Be SMART is a national nonprofit educational campaign designed specifically for adults to emphasize the lifesaving importance of secure firearm storage to protect children, teens, and at-risk individuals from unauthorized access to guns, resulting in suicide, unintentional death, injury, and trauma. Be SMART provides simple steps for adults, gun owners and non-gun owners alike, on ways to mitigate gun violence. We encourage adults to follow these 5 steps to help protect children:

S -  Secure guns in your homes and vehicles

M - Model responsible behavior around guns

A - Ask about unsecured guns in other homes

R - Recognize the role of guns in suicide

T - Tell your peers to Be SMART
