Why Are You At Risk?

These statistics are alarming. ArmsReach believes we can make a change in the number of
these unfortunate tragedies. We strive to educate and equip handgun owners with a new
handgun container to protect their own families from becoming one of these statistics. The
following statistical facts are the reason for ArmsReach. We strongly encourage “Responsible
Handgun Storage”.

• The FBI finds that a home invasion occurs every 15 minutes

The Children’s Defense Fund report, which was released March 23, 2012, is based largely on
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data from 2008 and 2009. The group’s analysis
found that 2,947 children and teens died from gunfire in 2008 and 2,793 died in 2009.

More children and teens died from gunfire in 2008 and 2009 — 5,750 — than the number of
U.S. military personnel killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Among 23 high2income countries in the world scholars have studied, the United States is home
to 80 percent of all gun deaths, and 87 percent of all gun deaths of children younger than 15.
In 2008, 2,947 children and teens died from guns in the United States and 2,793 died in 2009
for a total of 5,740—one child or teen every three hours, eight every day, 55 every week for
two years. Six times as many children and teens—34,387—suffered nonfatal gun injuries as
gun deaths in 2008 and 2009. This is equal to one child or teen every 31 minutes, 47 every day,
and 331 children and teens every week.
