Here at, we aim to cover all aspects of home safety, whether by teaching you ways to increase the security of your home, or showing you how to identify popular and avoidable security threats. As of late, one significant home security threat in the news that has really grabbed our attention is the possession of firearms and its’ role in home injuries and death. Constitutional rights notwithstanding, we can’t ignore how the current legality of firearm ownership seriously affects the safety of the home and especially young children.

We wanted to take our own curiosity a step further, so we conducted some research on firearms and created this infographic, “Firearms In The Home: Safe or Dangerous?“. The data we found was astounding, and makes us truly wonder if the current gun laws in the U.S. reflect the best interest of families and home safety. For instance, the U.S. has 80% more firearm deaths than the 23 other of the world’s richest countries in the world combined. And, your child’s risk of accidental death increases by four times when you have a gun in the home. What do you think about firearms in the home?

If you like the infographic, please share it with others on social media. You also can add the infographic on your website using the HTML code below. All we ask is that you credit us, Safe Sound Family, your best resource for home security systems and family safety, as the source.
