What Happens When Kids Find a GUN In a Playground…?


Every year around 100 children are accidentally shot and killed in the US each year. And some of that figure is down to children finding guns which have been left around, unattended. Once they get their tiny little hands on a weapon, they’re in severe danger of shooting themselves or other children. It’s very dangerous.

When a kid finds a gun that isn’t locked away, what do they do? Do they know to leave well alone? Can they tell the difference between a real gun and toy gun? Would they immediately tell their parents? YouTube filmmaker Joey Salads is determined to find out, so he’s set up a social experiment in a playground, with kids. Using a realistic fake gun, he sees how it plays out…

Whether you have kids or just know people who do – you’ll want to see this and pass on the message.
