Because kids are seeing guns in so many places, The Children’s Hour has tips on gun safety that hunting families have taught their kids for generations. We learn from kids who are hunters themselves on what hunting means to them, and we explore gun laws in the US and the world. Gun violence prevention begins with a conversation at home. Join us for this lifesaving episode of The Children’s Hour.
Our guest is Miranda Viscoli from New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence. Their organization teaches about gun locks, hosts gun buy back events, and works with teenagers to forge discarded weapons into art. She lets us know the parent responsibility to keep firearms secured, especially around children. We also discuss what kids can do when they come upon weapons. It’s especially important when guns can look like toys, and toys look like real guns.

Y-Media out of Indiana brings us the voices of kids who are hunters, about what hunting means for their families. Go on a squirrel hunt with a girl whose family relies upon the food hunting brings them.
Finally, is it possible that peace has a flavor? Hear about an apple cider press made from guns turned over after the Civil War.
Mixed with great music, this is an episode full of lifesaving lessons in gun violence prevention for kids and families.
