Do my family and I...

  • Understand the dangers of weapons, especially firearms, and how to prevent accidents?
  • Talk about the costs — personal and financial — of violence?
  • Think carefully about the kinds of entertainment we watch and hear?
  • Know and practice ways to settle disputes without violence?
  • Understand and practice basic self-protection strategies?

Do my neighbors and I...

  • Know each other reasonably well?
  • Work together to make our neighborhoods safe for children?
  • Agree on how and when to step in to prevent childrens' quarrels from becoming violent?
  • Discuss how we feel about weapons, including firearms, and what rules and standards we agree on?
  • Help each other by joining and taking an active role in Block Clubs and Neighborhood Watch?
  • Know that there are positive ways for our children to spend their time and energy after school?
  • Identify, discuss, and solve (or get help to solve) troubling conditions in our area?
  • Work with police, school officials, civic groups, and others to address larger issues for the community?

Does my community...

  • Have and enforce sound laws and regulations for secure weapons storage and against weapons violence?
  • Provide safe ways for residents to dispose of unwanted weapons?
  • Actively provide resources and know-how to help residents learn how to solve problems without violence?
  • Provide mentoring and other outreach services to troubled youth and families?
  • Enlist young people in addressing violence problems?
  • Coordinate community groups to develop comprehensive anti-violence strategies and plans?
  • Offer an attractive array of both family-oriented and youth-focused events?
  • Have clear standards that reject violence as a presence in the community?
