      One-third of all families in America that have children also have guns, and more than 40 percent of them don't keep their guns locked up. Children younger than eight can't tell the difference between a real gun and a toy, and 3-year-olds are strong enough to pull the trigger on a real gun. Children and teens commit more than half of all unintentional shootings.

      The statement from the National Library of Medicine needs to be updated. As we've seen in the GunFail series, apparently trigger strengths are so weak in some guns that some 2-year-olds can even pull the trigger.

      Setting: beautiful afternoon, back yard barbecue.

      It's a gorgeous day to get together for a cook out. Do you know where your guns are? Are they locked up?
