If your kid somehow finds your stash of sex toys, worst case scenario, you're in for a ton of embarrassment. If your kid finds your gun, the consequences can be much worse. Kids will play with the things they find. That is the message coming from Evolve, in a comical (and eye-opening) PSA.
Evolve is a non-profit organization that focuses on gun safety, rather than the Second Amendment/legislative aspect of the debate. Instead of getting involved in the political side of the discussion, they like to point out that there are many, many deaths each year attributed to accidents with guns inside the home. Just look at the recent story of the five-year-old Kentucky boy that accidentally shot and killed his two-year-old sister. Or, the Canadian five-year-old that nearly killed his sister after shooting through her bedroom door. In that case, authorities later found five unsecured guns in the home, along with hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and an assortment of swords, crossbows, and arrows.
It's a simple message: If you don't want your kids playing with it, you need to do a damn good job at hiding it.
And the message is being heard. Nearly 1.3 million views in less than 48 hours. It's too bad you'll never see anything like this allowed on television.
