Gun Safety in the Home Since the school shooting in Newtown, 41 children have accidentally shot themselves or other children with guns, usually found at home. Just last week a 4-year-old boy from Youngstown fatally shot himself at home. Join host Mike McIntyre and his panel of experts on Monday as they discuss how to prevent accidental gun deaths, and how gun owners can be responsible with their firearms in the home.
