Jennifer Sullivan, The Seattle Times, Mar. 14, 2012
Following three child-related shootings in Washington over a couple of months, media focus turned to public safety policies to reduce access to guns by kids, including child access prevention laws – laws that impose liability on a parent or other adult who negligently leave firearms accessible to children or otherwise allow children access to firearms – and trigger locking devices for firearms. Washington has no child access prevention or locking device laws.
