Matthew Davis quoted in Health Day article about gun safety

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

Matthew Davis was quoted in a Health Day news article called "Gun-Safety Talk a Safe Bet for All Families." The article, published in Business Week, presents the results of a new C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health, which found that only 48 percent of parents without firearms have discussed gun safety with their children.

"With firearms in about one-third of the approximately 35 million U.S. households with children under 18, discussing gun safety is something all parents need to consider," Davis said in a U-M news release. "Parents in non-gun-owning households simply cannot assume that their children will never encounter a situation involving firearms."
