The Wyomissing Public Library will host a program about gun safety on Wednesday, February 6th at 6 PM. The program, “Be Smart: A conversation about kids, guns, and safety,” will be presented by Kristin Kabakoff, and is intended for both gun owners and non-gun owners. Ms. Kabakoff, a nurse practitioner, is the mother of two small children. According to the BeSmart website, “Every year, nearly 300 children age 17 and under gain access to a gun and unintentionally shoot themselves or someone else, and nearly 500 more die by suicide with a gun. Many of these deaths are entirely preventable with responsible gun storage.”
BeSmart is a program designed to educate adults on ways to keep children safe from unintentional gun injuries. It consists of 5 easy steps that can save many lives. It is intended for both gun owners and non gun owners. It is a program of Moms Demand Action for Gun Safety, and Every Town for Gun Safety.
