Emmy Betz, an emergency physician at the University of Colorado School of Medicine who focuses on firearm injury prevention, said a central tenet of responsible firearm ownership is preventing access to that weapon to kids and other unauthorized people. “We know that kids are curious, kids are often impulsive, their brains are not fully formed,” Betz said. “As adults, one of the things we need to be doing is making sure that they don’t have access to dangerous things. “It can be with a trigger lock, a cable lock. There are lots of different ways to do that. But the main thing is it shouldn't just be hidden somewhere,” she said.
