Ask Day: One Simple Question Could Save Your Child’s Life
Did you know that in the U.S., one out of three homes that have children contains a gun?

In fact, thousands of children are accidental victims due to the easy access to loaded guns in houses where they play.

As a parent, how can you protect your child?

The ASK (Asking Saves Kids) campaign is hoping to encourage parents to help keep kids safe by simply asking questions on where your child visits.

Parents also want to keep that conversation open to kids if they have any questions about gun safety or gun usage.

Dr. Corinn Cross joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss Ask Day and how you can start asking questions to save your child's life.
