http://www.aap.org/advocacy/releases/junepax.htm Press Release PAX AND AAP TEAM UP AGAIN TO SEND A CRITICAL SUMMER MESSAGE TO PARENTS: ASK IF THERE ARE GUNS WHERE YOUR CHILDREN PLAY THOUSANDS OF FLOWERS TO BE PLANTED ON NATIONAL ASK DAY - JUNE 20 - TO SYMBOLIZE THE CHILDREN'S LIVES THAT CAN BE SAVED FROM GUN VIOLENCE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (June 14, 2002) - Each year over 3,000 children in the United States lose their lives to gun violence. In response, PAX - Real Solutions to Gun Violence and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), created the ASK (Asking Saves Kids) Campaign, an innovative and life-saving campaign that urges parents to ASK their neighbors if they have a gun in the home before sending their children over to play. It is based on the fact that over 40 percent of homes with children have guns, almost half of which are left unlocked or loaded.

Politics, thinly disguised as a child safety campaign. If someone actually has the stupidity to ask about your firearms, first have them explain why they're not also inquiring about poisonous chemicals, swimming pools, sharp objects, exposed electrical wiring, improperly designed child safety seats, aggressive pets, food poisoning, water heater thermostats set high enough to cause burns, neighbors with prior convictions for child molestation, or any of the countless other things that harm more children than firearms ever will. Then ask them to explain their disproportionate obsession with firearms. Anti-gun demonstration in Houston today by "Texans For Gun Safety", along with a (hopefully much larger) pro-gun counter-rally.

Anyone who asks about what valuables you have in your home is casing you for a robbery. Report these people to the police immediately.
